RD4U

www.rd4u.org.uk

RD4U is a website developed by Cruse Bereavement Care’s Youth Involvement Project which aims to support young people, after the death of someone close to them.

RD4U means the ‘road for you’. Everyone reacts differently to a death so if someone you know has died you could use their site to find out how others in your situation have coped. The main aim of the site is to let you find your own ‘road’ to dealing with your loss.

Get Connected

Get Connected is the free helpline for young people, who know they need help but don’t know where to find it. You can talk to them by phone, email and web chat any day of the year. Their Helpline Volunteers are fully trained to support each young person in their unique situation, and help them choose the best service from over 13,000 in the UK. Get Connected is the vital gateway between a distressing, confusing problem the young person can’t solve on their own and the service that can help them solve it.
