Who we work with

We collaborate with other charities, organisations and government to raise awareness of the challenges faced by those bereaved by suicide and to improve access to available support services. Find out more about our work with other organisations:

All Party Parliamentary Group – Suicide and Self Harm Prevention

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Suicide and Self Harm Prevention exists to raise awareness within Parliament and encourage discussion and debate of all issues involved in suicide and self harm prevention. The group is chaired by Madeleine Moon, MP for Bridgend in South Wales and includes representation from government, charities and other organisations.

The APPG supported the development of the 2012 suicide prevention strategy “Preventing Suicide in England”, which included an enhanced focus on the need to support families and communities bereaved by suicide.

In January 2013 the group issued a report following a review of local suicide prevention strategies and made recommendations for the future which included a requirement for all local authorities to develop and implement a local plan which should include provision for bereaved families.

The Alliance of Suicide Prevention Charities (TASC)

The Alliance of Suicide Prevention Charities (TASC) is an alliance of the leading charities dealing with suicide prevention and mental health issues. The TASC website is an educational and resource hub. TASC do not provide direct services.

TASC came together as an initiative to encourage collaboration and prevent duplication of efforts and funding in the area of suicide research and prevention. TASC was set up in November 2010 and holds quarterly meetings to discuss common goals, current research and future actions.

Suicide Bereavement Support Partnership

The Suicide Bereavement Support Partnership is an emerging collaboration between charities in the UK based on our vision that “People bereaved by suicide have the right to appropriate support services”.

We work together to share learning and best practice, to deliver joint initiatives which improve the range and quality of available services, to increase awareness of the services available and to build relationships between our organisations enabling appropriate signposting and referrals.

The team is newly formed – current participants include CALM, Winstons Wish, Compassionate Friends, Maytree, Cruse, Papyrus, If U Care Share, Child Bereavement Network, Matthew Elvidge Trust, Samaritans and the James Wentworth Stanley Memorial Fund.
