You can also support us by coming to one of our fundraising events in and around Brighton. We have had fantastic gigs and live music events, all day festivals, a remarkable auction of promises, several bake sales, summer barbeques, annual rounders tournament, art exhibitions and our World Suicide Prevention Day events in September of each year.
For details of upcoming events, check our Facebook page. And while you're there, we'd love you to follow us, if you don't do so already!
Taking on a challenge can be a personally fulfilling and life-affirming experience. It is also an opportunity to engage your friends, family, and colleagues through sponsorship. You might consider:
Whatever you do is up to you. We can provide a t-shirt, information booklets about Grassroots, and your personal sponsorship page on JustGiving. And, of course, you have our support and our best wishes in your endeavours.
If you’re taking a challenge and would like to collect sponsorship, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funding a safeTALK course or ASIST places for the community is a smart way to give a little bit back and help fulfil your company's social responsibilities. You'll get a public thank you on our Facebook and Twitter, and an acknowledgement of your giving on this page.

Grassroots Suicide Prevention have strengthened the board by appointing four new trustees, Caroline Hounsell, Steve Bulbeck, Emma Wadey and Roger De Casanove.
Each new trustee was selected for their commitment to Grassroots’ aims, their professional integrity, and proven strategic skills. Their wide range of experience is going to be invaluable in enacting the board’s governance role, and supporting Chief Executive, Stella Comber, to develop Grassroots’ business strategy.
In 2018, the expanded board will be focusing on supporting Stella and her team to explore new ways to build on Grassroots’ success so far in helping people understand suicide prevention is everyone’s business, and how to work together to make our communities safer from suicide.
We thank former trustees Jourdan Durairaj and Lisa Rodrigues who stepped down at the end of 2017, for all their support, wisdom and work over the past few years.
Grassroots Suicide Prevention is seeking a new Project Lead to strengthen our committed and dynamic staff team. Find out more here
"Suicide is everyone's business; it devastates so many lives no matter who you are, where you work or where you live. We want to use every method available to us to make Sussex, and beyond, a place where people thinking about suicide are supported and helped in their workplace and their community."
