Welcome to the Suicide Crisis website
Our Suicide Crisis Centres offer a safe place where you will be supported and helped through your crisis. Our care continues for as long as you need it. We have a team of dedicated, caring, well-qualified people who really want to help.
We provide face to face crisis support. Our new Centre is open 24 hours a day.
Our Suicide Crisis Centres can support you if you live in Gloucestershire. We also have a Trauma Centre.
We’re based in Cheltenham in Gloucestershire. We are a registered charity.
Our Trauma Centre opened in May 2013 and we are supporting people throughout Gloucestershire.
Our first Suicide Crisis Centre opened in September 2013. Our second opened in September 2016.

We are completely independent and this independence has allowed us to set up the kind of services that our clients want.
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.
The work of our Suicide Crisis Centre has been featured on BBC Breakfast News, the BBC 6 0’Clock News, Sky News and in national and international newspapers.
In 2016 we were asked to give oral evidence about our Suicide Crisis Centre to the Parliamentary Select Committee which undertook an inquiry into the measures needed to prevent suicide. We were also asked by the Government’s adviser on suicide to give a presentation about our work to the national advisory group which he chairs.
We rely on small grants and 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.
