Today I will be speaking at the first National Suicide Prevention Alliance conference at The Oval in London.
I will be addressing a broad audience about the work of The Tomorrow Project alongside internationally renowned scholar, Professor Keith Hawton.
The Tomorrow Project has delivered a range of vital services amidst a cluster of suicides in Nottinghamshire and more broadly across the whole of Nottingham city and because of this is getting National attention for this work.
The Tomorrow Project was established to respond to suicide when other services failed to; it was named by bereaved families and keeps community consultation at the heart of it’s work and is now able to take what has been learned onto a national platform to hopefully influence broader thinking on the issues the project has faced and also be a voice for those effected by suicide.
Today the Tomorrow Projects model will be presented, alongside the statistics and findings that we have gathered during the two years that we have been operating.
I am privileged to be speaking at such a platform and hope that I represent the views, needs and concerns of the families effected by suicide that we have helped over our time.
Out work is vital. Being given a chance to speak about our work, essential. Having the privilege to do his in collaboration with Professor Keith Hawton is a great opportunity.
Wish me luck!
Caroline Harroe, CEO Harmless and The Tomorrow Project.
