Welcome to the Suicide Crisis website.
Our Centres offer a safe space where you will be listened to, supported and helped through your crisis. We support you for as long as you need us. We have a team of dedicated, caring, well-qualified people who really want to help.
We provide face to face support.
Our Suicide Crisis Centre can support you if you live in Gloucestershire. We also have trauma services for people who have experienced trauma. Trauma services are open to you if you live in the surrounding areas, too, including Bristol and Oxford.
We’re based in Cheltenham in Gloucestershire. We are a company limited by guarantee and a charity.
Our Trauma Centre opened in May 2013 and we are supporting people throughout Gloucestershire (and beyond).
Our Suicide Crisis Centre opened in September 2013.

We are completely independent and this independence has allowed us to set up the kind of services that our clients want.
This is the first Suicide Crisis Centre in the country and our work has been described as “pioneering” by the Chief Constable of the British Transport Police. Our work has also been described as “inspirational” and “extraordinary” by the South West Zero Suicide Collaborative, one of three pilot schemes for the Government’s zero suicide initiative.
We receive no regular grants / funding and rely predominantly on public donations. We guarantee that public donations don’t go on staff salaries or advertising – the donated money goes directly towards services for people in suicidal crisis.
We send our special thanks to Montpellier PR for sponsoring and designing our website.
