Created originally by Mike McCarthy and Steve Phillip and following the tragic loss of their sons Ross and Jordan by suicide. The BatonOfHopeUK is designed to be the highest profile and biggest impact suicide awareness and prevention initiative the UK has ever seen. Its primary purpose is to help move us towards a zero suicide society by raising awareness about suicide and suicide prevention, opening up conversations about suicide and suicide prevention, and encouraging appropriate action. At its peak, in Summer 2023, our specially designed Baton will be shining the light of hope touring across the UK.
In the build-up to the live tour, we are engaging with people, charities and organisations who share our ambition, including the development of a series of Charters including Schools and Workplace summarising what steps can be taken to help save lives. We will leave a legacy beyond the live tour.
By donating to this page, you will help fund the above goals as well as the investment being made in projects such as: website development, social media content creation and management, database management, marketing, PR and graphic design support and developing the Charters for Action, as well as several other costs associated with putting on an initiative of this scale.
