Hello, I’m Lisa and I have recently joined the Tomorrow Project as a Suicide Bereavement Support Officer. So why did I take this job?……Well, having lost both my sister and uncle to suicide, I feel I can offer a genuine understanding of the difficulties people may face both with their own grief and in supporting others.
With the numbers of deaths by suicide significantly increasing in recent years, I feel the need to expand our service is paramount. That’s why I am really looking forward to working alongside my colleagues to expand our service by setting up the Chesterfield office: to ensure we are doing everything possible to reach out and support anyone in Derbyshire who has been bereaved by suicide.
Whilst I don’t yet know everyone within the company, those I have met are extremely dedicated and helpful people who are all fun to be around. I still have lots to learn (but hopefully no more eLearning for a while!) and whilst I am still getting to grips with my new role, I am eager to develop our client list as fast as possible and make our service known to everyone.
I am sharing a picture of me with my cat ‘Spartacus’. I think he is very lucky because he has 9 lives. X
