We are a national voluntary organisation which provides emotional support and
practical information to people whose lives have been affected by homicide. It
is a free confidential service provided by trained volunteers nationwide.
The death of someone close to you through a violent crime is a devastating and
traumatic experience. Sudden, unexpected death brings particular distress to the
bereaved families. Talking to an experienced volunteer outside the family can be
helpful. When someone has been bereaved by homicide they can often feel lonely,
frightened and truly feel that no one understands. Talking confidentially to
someone who understands can help. Dealing with multiple emotions can be
exhausting for the bereaved. We offer non judgemental compassionate support
which can help you realise that you are not alone with your pain and distress.
We offer emotional support and practical inforamtion.
We understand how difficult it can be sorting out the practicalities while you
are coping with the shock and trauma of losing someone
suddenly. Our team of
specially trained volunteers provide:
- One to one support
- Family support
- Support groups
We also provide group therapy.
