PAPYRUS is the national charity for the prevention of young suicide and believes that many young suicides are preventable. They operate HOPELINEUK, a confidential call, text, and email helpline for young people with thoughts of suicide or those concerned about a young person who may have thoughts of suicide. Every £5 raised can help pay for a potentially life-saving contact to HOPELINEUK from a young person wanting to stay safe from their thoughts of suicide.
As well as running HOPELINEUK, PAPYRUS offers training - the charity hopes to equip communities with the skills to identify people who may be at risk of suicide and keep people safe. They also campaign to raise awareness of the need for greater suicide prevention, and to #smashthestigma that exists around talking about suicide.
Our supporters and fundraisers provide a huge part of our income, which helps us reach more people across the UK. This enables us to support more young people and those who are concerned about a young person at risk of suicide. Through fundraising you are also raising vital awareness of PAPYRUS and spreading our message of hope. Thank you.
