Could you be our next Community Champion?

Could you join our business community champions? 

Every year we run a number of events and to make those event happen in a way that reaches everyone that it needs to, we engage with as many corporate sponsors as we are able.

Our community champions help us to widen our offer of help to more people that need it. 

Could you be a community champion? 

Are you a company looking for further CSR opportunities? 

Could you donate £1-300 (or more, obviously!!) to help people in distress and their families come along to our help promoting events.

Your money would help us host events that reach people; in return you would receive sponsorship acknowledgment in local press and convene and an update about the social impact you’ve contributed to.  

Please share, and thank you and if you want to get involved, please contact admin@harmless.org.uk

2016 Annual Celebration Event

Friday 7th saw our 9th anniversary of Harmless. The night was buzzing with excitement and the venue was a remarkable space for us to celebrate our work.

My role that evening was to guide everyone through the night. I felt very privileged to do so and very nervous to be hosting such a significant Harmless event. My colleagues, as always, were incredibly supportive and as a team we worked together to ensure the night was a memorable one. We were very fortunate this year to have in attendance the High Sheriff, Judy Naake, and the Lord Mayor of Nottingham both of whom have been big supporters of the work we do. 

There was a delicious three course meal and as we ate we were all serenaded by Polly and her colleague Iian with their wonderful music. A poignant part of the night was when Kate shared with us her personal experience of self harm. It is one thing to speak to one individual about something personal and quite another to speak to a whole room full of people. Kate’s bravery was felt by all of us that night and certainly demonstrated the significance of our service.

The night continued to be a great success with Hayley providing us with some Spoken word poetry, inspiring the poet in us all! Each year so much work and dedication goes into organising the event and ensuring our supporters enjoy themselves. We at Harmless are our supporters’ biggest fans, as without their support we would not have got to where we have today. A big thank you goes to Kate, Hayley and Polly for their time and contributions in making the night even more special.

Our annual event is an important night. It not only raises vital funds to save lives but it also provides us with an opportunity to stop and celebrate the successes throughout the year. Harmless is an extraordinary service and I am very proud to be a part of it.

Next year we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary. We hope to see familiar faces again and if you haven’t attended before then we invite you and those you know to join us for a wonderful night next year!

Could you support us to keep our services afloat?

The support services that we offer to people in crisis is a vital aspect of our work and yet we don’t have ongoing funding for much of this work.

Much of our crisis and therapeutic work is in need of supporters and fundraisers to enable us to keep helping people who can’t get this help from anywhere else.

Currently, regular donations enable us to provide 2 crisis sessions a month to people who would otherwise not get the help that they need. This isn’t a lot, but it really is important work. We have many people who aren’t able to receive our help and we hate having to turn people away.

There are many ways that you could help us to increase the number of people that we are able to help. Could you undertake your own fund raising activity – people have undertaken personal challenges, ran half marathons and held cake sales, all in the name of raising money for our work?

You can set up a fundraiser page here: https://localgiving.org/fundraisers

If you are not able to undertake a fundraiser; could you sign up to a regular donation via direct debit? Signing up to an amount that you are able to commit to on a monthly basis means that an amount as small or large as you are able to help with, will go directly to helping people.  By giving in this way you are helping us to save lives – what could be more rewarding?

Harmless is an award winning self harm and suicide prevention project that has been successfully delivering services since 2007. Over the past year Harmless has gone from strength to strength. We’ve increased our partnerships and been involved in more research based projects, attended and presented at conferences all over the UK in addition to holding a National conference of our own. We have also rebranded and extended our training programme to raise awareness of self harm, mental health & suicide amongst the community and professionals. We have received awards for our work and recruited more staff in order to help more people.

Our wonderful Tomorrow Project continues to deliver suicide prevention and postvention work in the community. We work with those directly and indirectly affected by suicide, provide facilitative support to individuals and organisations with questions and concerns about suicide, deliver workshop style information sessions to improve understanding and awareness of suicide and self harm, and promote help seeking in the community as a whole.

The celebration evening will mark a milestone in our work and give us the opportunity to raise revenue to keep our vital services afloat. Each year we spend time with friends and colleagues, celebrating the work that we have done and the lives that we have saved and the money we raise on the night goes directly back into our life saving services.

Please come along and join is in what will be a wonderful night, learn more about our work, celebrate our triumphs and help us to raise money to keep us driving services in the field of self harm and suicide prevention forwards.
