If you have been bereaved or affected by suicide and you would like to talk with one of our volunteers about your experience, you can get in touch in the following ways:
Email – write to firstname.lastname@example.org
Helpline – open 9am to 9pm, 0300 111 5065
030 numbers are specially designed for not-for-profit organisations, charities and public bodies to offer consumers a single point of contact nationally.
The BBC, the Met Police, the RSPCA, Oxfam, Relate, some local councils, Ofcom and a number of government departments use 030 numbers. How much do calls cost? Calls cost no more than calls to geographic (01 and 02) numbers and must be included in inclusive minutes and discount schemes in the same way. Calls from landlines are typically charged up to 9p per minute; calls from mobiles typically cost between 8p and 40p per minute. Calls from landlines and mobiles are included in free call packages. We have no information on charges relating to Pay As You Go tariff, please contact your provider for more information.
