Amparo offers a free, easy-to-access service backed up by a non-geographic telephone number and/or simple online referral form. Referrals can be made by anyone – we work with, and encourage referrals from, emergency support services, coroners, the NHS or other local support agencies, as well as self-referrals – and these are triaged with the aim of making contact within 24 hours of receipt.
Locally-based Suicide Liaison Workers work with beneficiaries, helping them with practical issues arising from suicide and ensuring they are linked into local support networks. Support is offered for as long as it’s required, up to and beyond an inquest.
