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 are incredibly proud of our 20 new ambassadors who took an hour out of their day to take suicideTALK on 25 October 2017.
The 20 members of the public are now equipped with the skills and confidence to ask about suicide. Talking about suicide openly and honestly lets other people know it's ok to ask for help, and that they can talk to you. It's also crucial in helping to de-stigmatise using the word "suicide" in conversations. If more people are asking for help with their thoughts of suicide then it could mean more suicides are prevented.
The first suicideTALK delivered in Brighton & Hove was been funded by donations on World Suicide Prevention Day 2017, so we would like to thank the public in Brighton for helping to make this course happen.
On Friday 8 September Grassroots Suicide Prevention will be relaunching their suicide prevention App #StayAlive.
Stay Alive is the ideal tool to help people who are suffering with thoughts of suicide to be reminded of their own reasons for living and access support in times of crisis. It’s also a great resource for carers supporting people with thoughts of suicide.
We currently have 30,000 downloads and are looking to significantly add to this during World Suicide Prevention Day, on 10 September 2017.Your support could help save a life.
How? By downloading this free, award-winning app you will help highlight the importance of suicide prevention.
Take a minute, change a life.
"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."
