WBS Services
WBS can provide counselling and support to help you work through mourning the loss of someone close to you.

To arrange a visit by a support volunteer telephone 01925 631516.

If you have arranged an appointment but then find it is not convenient, please telephone us, giving as much notice as possible (preferably at least 24 hours).

There is no charge for our service. However, should you wish to make a donation to our work it would be greatly appreciated, but it is by no means obligatory.

You can also come along for a chat over a cup of tea or coffee at The Coffee Bar, Holy Trinity Church, Sankey Street. A bereavement support volunteer is present every Saturday morning between 10:30 am and 12.00 noon.
