Story

We are delighted to be supporting Chris's House as our fundraising partner for the 2024 Buccleuch Property Challenge. Please help us raise valuable funds for this inspiring charity!

Chris’s House was founded by Anne Rowan, a Wishaw mum with a passionate vision for a crisis centre established in memory of her son Chris, whom she lost to suicide in 2011 at the age of 36. In the years following Chris’s death, Anne experienced an overwhelming sense of guilt.

She turned her attention to taking action – through the creation of Chris’s House, a ‘Centre for Help, Response and Intervention Surrounding Suicide’. It is the first 24 hour, non-medical crisis centre in Scotland offering integrated support. The cosy rooms have each been carefully designed to offer guests an environment they can feel comfortable in. The generosity of families that have been touched by the work Chris’s House have accomplished have raised the funds or made donations to allow for the space offer calm and wellbeing.

Anne remains an active and passionate leader of Chris’s House. She is adamant that the focus not remain solely on her efforts. She is joined in this mission to help bring awareness to mental ill health with more than 60+ volunteers. Each have been touched in some way by suicide and understand the on-going ripple effects that it has on family, friends and the community.

Chris's House has been set up to offer a safe environment where people in, or approaching, suicidal crisis can have a safe place to go and get professional support. This will help them to begin to recover from their current mental ill health. Chris’s House call anyone using their service a “Guest” and offer an individually tailored programme for each Guest.
