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.

As part of LGBT HISTORY MONTH & The B Right On LGBT Community Festival
suicideTALK: A one-hour exploration and awareness-raising session suitable for all individuals and groups within communities. If you are concerned about suicide in your community this training can help you talk about one of the most taboo subjects in the world today.
If you work face to face with members of the LGBT community then SuicideTalk is for you. Grassroots Suicide Prevention, LGBT Switchboard, MindOut and the LGBT Community Safety Forum are working together to ensure that those working in the LGBT community are trained in having conversations about suicide.
Ethical debt purchaser and credit management firm 1st Credit is to partner suicide prevention charity Grassroots in 2018 in a bid to improve the experiences of vulnerable customers.
With Grassroots as its chosen charity for 2018, 1st Credit, part of global credit management group Intrum, will train its own staff in suicide prevention as well as raising money and helping the charity increase its reach across the financial services sector.
This year we have trained over 1,000 people in Suicide alertness and Suicide prevention, we have reached over 37,000 downloads of our #StayAlive app (still counting), and so far more than 2,500 people have taken our “Tell Me” suicide prevention pledge.
"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."
