Story

This year, I'm dedicating my efforts to supporting Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide - SOBS, a charity that held a lifeline for me and my family during our darkest times. When I felt most alone in dealing with the loss of my Dad to suicide, Sobs became my sanctuary, offering genuine understanding and the empathy I needed to navigate through my grief.

Their unwavering support helped me find the courage to acknowledge the painful truth about my father's passing. It wasn't easy to voice those words, but with the guidance and compassionate advice from the remarkable volunteers at Sobs, I found the strength to confront the reality.

Being part of Sobs connected me with others who, like me, had lost loved ones to suicide. It was a challenging journey, yet in our shared grief, I found solace and a sense of unity. The Cardiff Sobs group became a beacon of hope during my darkest days, and for that, I'll be forever grateful.

Your donation to Sobs can help them continue their incredible work, providing vital support to families facing the unimaginable. Your generosity will ensure that others find the comfort and guidance they desperately need.

Thank you for your kindness and support in making a difference in the lives of those dealing with profound loss.

Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SoBS) is a national charity that provides support to people over the age of 18 impacted by suicide. The mission of SoBS is to provide free peer support to adults bereaved by suicide in a timely and open-ended manner and our vision is that no one bereaved by suicide has to face their loss alone.
