Usual Service:

Camden, City, Islington & Westminster Bereavement Service (CCIWBS) is an independent registered charity, founded in 1969

The service is available to anyone over 18.  Clients registered with a Camden or Islington GP can access one-to-one or group bereavement counselling for free.  

Our services are also available to clients from other boroughs on a contributions basis.

We offer a confidential service, which is open to everyone, regardless of age, sexuality, ethnic origin, culture or religion. In particular, are committed to providing support to people who are not used to seeking help through counselling.

Counselling which can be either during the day or the evening, is provided by trained and supervised volunteer counsellors on a regular weekly basis. The number of sessions needed may vary from between one or two, to periods of up to two years.

People who use the Service may have lost a baby in pregnancy, or have had to endure the death of a partner, child, lover, parent, relation, friend or colleague in many different circumstances.

The deaths may have been caused by illness, accident, suicide, murder, war or natural causes. Very often people may experience a loss or life event that brings up old memories or feelings from earlier bereavements.
