Grassroots Suicide Prevention’s vision is a future where more lives are saved from suicide. We aim to spread awareness and save lives by Connecting, Educating and Campaigning nationally. Our training courses covering topics of self-harm, mental health, suicide awareness and prevention reduces the stigma around suicide and equips people with the skills to support those at-risk. Our award-winning Stay Alive app provides vital support and resources for anyone thinking of suicide or worried about someone else.
By Connecting, we listen and connect people to support through our Stay Alive app, tools, and resources to help keep people safe from suicide.
By Campaigning, We help remove the stigma around suicide. We know that most suicides are preventable with timely intervention and the right support. We raise awareness through campaigning on the ground and influencing at a strategic level.
By Educating, We offer bespoke and evidence-based consultation and training, co-designed to empower individuals, organisations, and communities to develop the skills and confidence to help save lives.
Maggie’s in Southampton provides information, advice and support for people with cancer and their loved ones living for the South Coast. Our centre is just a short walk away from the oncology department at University Hospital Southampton. We aim to provide emotional, practical and social support for anyone affected by cancer including carers, all delivered within a calming and inspiring environment.
The support we offer is wide-ranging and includes delivering sessions on topics such as coping with hair loss, facilitating peer support groups, offering relaxation and exercise classes such as Tai Chi and mindfulness, as well as providing individual benefits advice and one-to-one psychological support.
Everyone needs something different and we work with each individual to identify the most suitable elements of our programme that will empower them to negotiate a way through their own or a loved ones’ cancer experience. We support people at all stages of the cancer journey, from diagnosis to treatment, through to remission and bereavement.
Southampton Hospitals Charity raises money for your local hospital and NHS heroes.
At Southampton Hospitals Charity, we bring people together to raise life-changing funds for University Hospital Southampton – the south coast’s leading healthcare provider. From specialist services to pioneering research, you can help us to enhance care, experience and out comes for thousands of patients every year.
It's support from the community that makes much of what we do possible.
Wessex Heartbeat is a well established local charity that helps newborns, children and adults diagnosed with congenital and cardiovascular diseases primarily by supporting the work of the Wessex Cardiac Unit based at Southampton General Hospital. This is achieved by providing specialised equipment, services and facilities to help patients and their relatives through their cardiac journey. Wessex Heartbeat raises funds to contribute to the prevention, rehabilitation and cure of heart diseases. They also fundraise to provide funding and facilities to train and educate healthcare professionals in the Cardiac Centre.
Winchester Hospice provides palliative and end of life care to adults with life-limiting diseases. At the heart of the community, they ensure those who require care and support receive it at the right time, in the right place.

The hospice team, together with our palliative care team, community nurses and a dedicated team of volunteers, have one clear goal — to bring peace, comfort, and dignity to every patient they care for. Winchester Hospice provides care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to provide care, and support.
