Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SoBS)

We are a National charity who exist to meet the needs and break the isolation experienced by those bereaved by suicide.   We are a self-help organisation and we aim to provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, so giving and gaining support from each other.  We also strive to improve public awareness and maintain contacts with many other statutory and voluntary organisations.

To address these needs we offer: a national helpline, peer led, self-help, support groups, support by email, an online forum, and a number of conferences and support days for survivors.
