Founding Patron – Alice Middleton MBE

Alice founded Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide in 1991.  Following the suicide of her brother, Alice struggled to find anyone she could turn to for support.  She placed an advert in her local paper and began the helpline from her home phone.  As demand grew, the first support group was started and the charity has grown from these beginnings in Hull to become the national charity we are today.  Alice received her MBE in 2008 in recognition of her work.
