The Jordan Legacy is a registered Community Interest Company (CIC) established in memory of Jordan Phillip, from Horsforth, Leeds, who tragically took his own life on December 4th 2019, age 34. Within weeks of Jordan's death, his father, Steve, made a commitment to do whatever was necessary to ensure that no other family would have to receive the call that he did that day.
The Jordan Legacy began in March 2020 has a self-funded (from savings) website to provide Help resources to those who were contemplating ending their lives and to support those bereaved by suicide and those struggling with their mental health.
By the time The Jordan Legacy became a registered company in October 2020, Steve was already delivering talks on the topics of suicide prevention and mental wellbeing to organizations around the UK, including the military and a number of government departments, including the Cabinet Office, Home Office, the DHSC and others.
To date, The Jordan Legacy has not relied on any government or public grant funding and is able to continue to operate thanks to the generosity of individuals and organisations donating to their Mission.
There is overwhelming evidence to suggest that most suicides are preventable if the right interventions take place - we can all make a difference and help save a life.
To understand our story, please watch this video interview with Steve, Jordan's father, which was recorded in 2021
