Welcome to the Guernsey Bereavement Service

The Guernsey Bereavement Service is a free, voluntary, confidential service available for everyone. Our volunteers are drawn from varied backgrounds. They undergo training to maintain the highest possible standards. All volunteers receive regular independent supervision and abide by the code of Ethics of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy . We are affiliated with Cruse Bereavement Care, UK

Guernsey Bereavement Service LBG is based at Kingsland House.
Support sessions are available by appointment. Please call the GBS office on 257778 or email

Finding the Right Support

We provide emotional support for anyone, aged over 16 years, who is struggling to cope with a loss. Most support is on a one-to-one basis but, from time-to-time we run support groups, which are an opportunity to share experiences and support others in a similar situation.
