SOS – Silence Of Suicide, co-founders Michael Mansfield QC and Yvette Greenway have been in various discussions and are pleased to announce they have secured a meeting with the Home Secretary next month.
Included on the agenda will be discussions about future plans in regards to networking initiatives, drop in centres, fundraising and SOS plans to deliver a second residential respite retreat for those most vulnerable to taking their own lives, in conjunction with Maytree Suicide Respite Centre.
The Maytree Suicide Respite Centre is the only place of its kind in the UK and fills a gap in services, between the medical support of the NHS and the helplines and drop-in centres of the voluntary sector.
They offer a free 4-night/5-day stay, and the opportunity to be befriended and heard in complete confidence, without judgement and with compassion and warmth.

SOS – Silence Of Suicide will keep everyone posted about how the meeting goes and more importantly what it will mean in relation to the delivery of future services.
