Three Months to Save Our Services

For over 30 years, we’ve offered support to thousands of women and girls in the depths of despair, but now we need to ask for help ourselves.


Self injury Support offers direct support by phone, text and webchat to women and girls across the UK affected by self-harm.

Many of the women and girls we support have been affected by abuse and trauma, many are suicidal and all of them desperately want to talk to someone who won’t judge or ignore them, and who understands the complexities of self-harm.

Self-harm is on the rise in the UK, especially amongst young women and the likelihood of dying by suicide is increased 35 times if you’ve previously used self-harm.

I can’t thank you enough.

You’ve saved my life.

Now we need your help to save our services and carry on giving lifesaving help to women and girls who use self-harm, because without your support the only free, UK-wide self harm support service will close in early 2020.

Despite our best efforts, we are struggling to secure funding to carry on running our services after the end of January 2020.

Can you help us provide vital support to vulnerable women at high risk of self-harm or suicide?

In the current climate, there is less and less funding available for small organisations like ours which do unique and vital work, but don’t have the capacity to fundraise full-time.

The best way to help save our services is to sign up to a small monthly donation.

If everyone reading this was able to donate £5 a month the service would be fully funded and we would no longer need to constantly apply for funding grants.

We know £5 a month is not affordable for everyone but any support you can give by donating or sharing this appeal is hugely appreciated.
