SOBS (Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide) is a self help, voluntary organisation in which many of those helping have, themselves, been bereaved by suicide.
We exist to meet the needs and break the isolation of those bereaved by the suicide of a close relative or friend.
We offer emotional and practical support in a number of ways:
- Telephone contacts.
- Bereavement packs.
- Group meetings (in a number of locations).
- One-day conferences.
- Residential events.
- Information relating to practical issues and problems.
- In some areas, one-to-one meetings and home visits.
Our aim is to provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, so giving and gaining support from each other.
We also strive to improve public awareness and maintain contacts with many other statutory and voluntary organisations.
Suicide recognises no age, social, ethnic or cultural boundaries – neither do we. Our groups are open to any individual or family.
