Due to the current situation around coronavirus (COVID-19), we have taken the decision to suspend our face to face bereavement support sessions,until it is safe to return to normal working practice.


However during these challenging times we are able to provide a 'A Listening Ear'.

If you would like to talk to someone please do contact us:

Feeling lost following  bereavement?

The Listening Ear is a local charity providing bereavement counselling to families in the Croydon area (and further afield for families bereaved by suicide). We offer support to adults, young people and children. 

"I have learnt that it's OK to cry and not hold in your emotions. Even though the pain is still there it will soon get easier."

Teenage service user   

"My counsellor was professional. I found her listening style, compassion and gentle guidance/insights really great." 

Adult service user   

"...has become more settled since he has engaged with the service about the passing of his mother."
