Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide

We exist to meet the needs and break the isolation of those bereaved by the suicide of a close relative or friend. Our volunteers have also been bereaved by suicide.

We offer emotional support in a number of ways.... Telephone Helpline, Information, Email Support, Community Forum, Support Group Meetings, Support Days, Residential Events.

Our aim is to provide a safe, confidential environment, in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, thus giving and gaining support from each other. We also strive to improve public awareness and maintain contacts with many other statutory and voluntary organisations. Suicide recognises no social, ethnic or cultural boundaries, neither do we, our groups are free of charge and open to all survivors of bereavement by suicide, aged 18 or over.
