The Listening Place
The Listening Place is unique in offering free, face to face, on-going support for those with suicidal feelings. The programme is provided by 400 trained volunteers who are supported by mental health professionals. Regular appointments are given to beneficiaries for as long as it is helpful. The Listening Place?s research demonstrates that it significantly reduces the suicidal feelings in many of its beneficiaries during the first three months of support. A grant from The Fore will demonstrate that the Listening Place?s model is replicable and scalable and enable the charity to establish in a second location.
