Harmless Community Champions

 In News

Would you be willing to become a Harmless Community Champion and enable the organisation to increase and promote access to specialist mental health and suicide prevention events for those that cannot otherwise afford it?

Harmless is a specialist user led service that works to alleviate human suffering, promote wellbeing and ultimately, reduce suicide. Their services provide support to individuals in distress and provide life saving support to vulnerable people who are at risk of ending their life by suicide by providing them with help and support in the community when they can’t find it elsewhere.

Harmless launched in 2007 and was set up by people who have experienced distress and at the heart of their service is a real sense of hope. They know with the right support and help life can get better and the people they help go on to live healthy and fulfilling lives.

Harmless aim to make all their services accessible by taking help out into the community, going into schools and workplaces, hosting drop ins and ‘meet the team’ sessions. The services that they provide to people in distress are free of charge to ensure that in a time of crisis and distress they do not have to think about what it will cost to get the help that they need. Harmless raise money for these vital and life saving services by hosting training; selling products, fundraising activities and by hosting a range of events that save lives.

Harmless Conference to be held on 1st March 2019

  • A donation of £300 would enable Harmless to allow an additional 3 individuals to have access to this event
  • They are additionally looking either for one or two main event sponsors for this forthcoming conference

Local Community Champions are vital to their work and help to enable those who cannot readily afford vital support and advice, such as parents or carers. Talking about self harm, suicide and mental health is often seen as taboo but Harmless sincerely hope that you will consider supporting them by providing sponsorship.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Trevor Harris on 0115 971 3343, or Darren Fox at Harmless on 0115 880 0280 to discuss things further.

Both Pedigree and Harmless would like to thank you for taking the time to review this request for help and we both hope that it supports your organisational goals for supporting local community services.
