Cruse Bereavement Care (Northampton) has been awarded £3,000 from Northamptonshire Community Foundation through the Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund.
Cruse is the leading bereavement specialist charity in the UK and offers support to anyone affected by the loss of a loved one.
The Northampton branch has 49 dedicated volunteers who deliver free, confidential one-to-one and telephone support services to all those affected.
The charity recently temporarily moved their services to telephone and email support to ensure they can still meet the needs of those impacted by loss throughout these times of uncertainty.
The grant will support the transition from a face-to-face to remote service, as well as adapting the volunteer training programme and putting in place additional safeguarding guidance.
