Calderdale Help in Bereavement Service (CHIBS) was established in 1984 by a group of people who felt there was a need for bereavement support.
Since then it has gone from strength to strength, obtaining charity status in 2003. CHIBS is now working with a pool of 50 Befrienders, all whom have undergone a criminal record check (DBS), are professionally trained and receive regular supervision.
On average, the charity sees around 150 clients per year but this is on the increase. The range of support can range from a single phone call to a number of visits over a period of months.
You can contact them on 0845 0099220 (Adult Line) Or 0845 0099221 (Child Line) and the service is free and confidential. You can also contact them through their website: www.chibs.org.uk
