Due to funding pressures, the Sudden service is now closed.
If you are bereaved and in crisis, please use the resources on our website or call The Samaritans on 116 123. Please contact your GP directly if you require any immediate support and in case of an emergency, please call 999.
Whether you are a family member, neighbour, or charity volunteer, if you are providing care and love to someone who has been suddenly bereaved by any cause, inclusive of COVID-19, then you are a community hero.
