CHUMS has been supporting families bereaved by suicide for many years but families often tell us that they wish our support had been available to them earlier. With the help of a fundraising initiative we are able to offer an immediate response to families where someone dies by sudden death including suicide; support is offered to both adults and children/young people. This is possible by working collaboratively with the police, coroner and other agencies.
Following a death, the police will refer to us and we will respond within 24 hours. Individuals and other agencies can also refer via firstname.lastname@example.org
