As part of our commitment to fundraising and donating to worthwhile causes and charities, we are pleased to confirm that we have made a significant donation to Papyrus.
PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide is the UK charity dedicated to the prevention of suicide and the promotion of positive mental health and emotional wellbeing in young people.
Suicide is the biggest killer of people aged 35 and under in the UK.
PAPYRUS was founded in 1997 by a group of bereaved parents, who had each lost children to suicide. The founding parents shared core beliefs that suicide is preventable, and that those with lived experience of suicide have a valuable and unique contribution to make to the wider conversation around suicide.
Since then, PAPYRUS has grown into a UK-wide charity with offices in north west England, south west England, West Midlands, London, Northern Ireland, north Wales, south Wales, and Scotland.
Today, they are a leading youth suicide prevention charity in the UK. Their suicide prevention helpline, HOPELINEUK, is staffed by trained suicide prevention advisers, who work with young people – and anybody concerned for a young person – to help keep them safe from suicide. HOPELINEUK is a free and confidential call, text and email service, which is available from 9am to midnight, every day of the year.
Papyrus, also delivers suicide prevention education and training packages to thousands of people each year, to create suicide-safer communities across the UK.
