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 National Counselling Society.

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