Care for the Family

Care for the Family is a national charity which aims to promote strong family life and to help those hurting because of family breakdown.

We couldn't do this without the help of our supporters - people like you. Together we can strengthen marriages, support parents and help the bereaved. We do this through events, resources, training and networks of befrienders.

Cruse Bereavement Care Youth Involvement Project

RD4U is a website developed by Cruse Bereavement Care's Youth Involvement Project which aims to support young people, after the death of someone close to them. They believe that the best way of doing this is to involve young people in planning, developing and delivering services.  RD4U means the 'road for you'. Everyone reacts differently to a death and they are not there to tell you how you should be acting or feeling. If someone you know has died you could use our site to find out how others in your situation have coped.
