Three Months to Save Our Services

“I can’t thank you enough – you’ve saved my life.”

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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