CARIS Islington

Caris Islington Bereavement Service

The CARIS Bereavement Service helps children, young people and adults in Islington who are experiencing bereavement. We will help anyone in Islington who has been bereaved, regardless of disability, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, race, or sexuality, or whether the bereavement was recent or a long time ago. Our service is free and confidential. Counselling takes place in our premises in Tollington Park. There are stairs down to our office. If mobility is an issue we might be able to meet at the GP clinic or other location where and appropriate room can be assured.

If you would like our help ...

Phone our office on 020 7281 5200 and leave us a message. One of our senior counsellors will phone you back or write to you to offer you an appointment within a couple of weeks.

When you meet with the senior counsellor it will be a chance to talk about what has happened and to discuss whether the Bereavement Service will be able to help. This initial meeting puts you under no obligation to accept further visits unless you feel it would be helpful to you.

In an emergency you could try 999, the Samaritans or contact your GP.
