We are sorry for your loss and our thoughts are with you as you go through this difficult time.
There are many ways you can honour your loved one with special memories and leave a legacy to help others in their name.
Please make sure you also get the support you need.
Find bereavement support
We understand that losing someone you love can be devastating, and even more complex with suicide. Please take the time to find the support you may need.
We have lived experience of suicide. This lived experience can be found on all levels of our charity, from volunteers through to staff and trustees, and it is a golden thread which drives us to make a difference. We understand the complex emotions like shock and intense grief after a suicide.
If you or someone you know are struggling to navigate your grief, please seek some support.
Thoughts of suicide
Sometimes people bereaved by suicide experience suicidal thoughts themselves. With support, these feelings can pass.
Our Stay Alive app is a suicide prevention resource full of tools and resources to help people stay safe from suicide. It can be used by someone thinking about suicide or those worried about someone else. It is free to download from Google Play and the App Store, or can be accessed online.

Ways to remember
We have teamed up with MuchLoved, an online tribute charity who help the bereaved work through their grief by creating personal tribute pages, enabling people to share their feelings and memories.
Tribute pages are free, online spaces where you can commemorate, celebrate, or simply remember someone you love with messages, photos and videos. It’s quick and easy to set up, and you can keep the page online for as long as you wish. Any donations made through tribute pages will support our livesaving work.
A tribute page also has the optional feature to add a funeral notice, allowing you to share memorial details with family and friends.
Create a tribute page now
You may find it helpful to share a precious photo, thought, or memory about the person you lost on our dedication page, where they will always be remembered.
You can do this as many times as you wish, on anniversaries or when you need to share your feelings. This can be a helpful way to keep the memory of your loved one alive.
If you wish, you can also donate in your loved one’s name.
Dedicate a memory
When you make an online donation, you have the option to share with us who you are donating in memory of. We will ensure records reflect their legacy of helping prevent suicide.
Most funeral directors can arrange funeral collections or gifts in lieu of flowers. If you would like to do this, simply provide our details as follows:
Charity name: Grassroots Suicide Prevention
Registered charity number: 1149873
Address: 113 Queens Road, Brighton BN1 3XG
If you need any administrative support to allow you to concentrate on what matters most, we would be happy to liaise with your funeral director.
We are so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Thank you so much for thinking about our charity whilst coping with your loss. Our work is dedicated to helping prevent tragic losses like yours.
If you have any questions about in memory giving, want us to set up a collection at the funeral, or need support in setting up a personal tribute, please contact us.
