Welcome

Grassroots is an award-winning charity and UK leader in suicide prevention. We believe that suicide can be prevented through open and direct conversations. We call this Real Talk. We provide people with the skills and confidence needed to save lives through our training, innovation, and thought-provoking campaigns. But that’s not all. We make change. We work with ChangeMakers - the people who share our beliefs and want to make a difference.
