End Child Suicide in The UK
Ambitious individuals and companies turn to us to help them improve their public speaking. We are champions of speaking up and helping people become heard.
Unfortunately, hundreds of children take their own life each year in the UK and part of the problem is not having support available when it’s needed most.
The SPEAKup Challenge and our community of ambitious speakers are on a mission: to end child suicide in the UK.
We will fund 1000 outreach calls for children in distress to speak with a support worker when they need it most.
Every day many children pick up the phone and reach out to Childline for help. These conversations are driven by a range of factors including poor mental health and even physical abuse at home.
Childline is struggling to keep the phone lines open 24/7. If they miss a call, that could be one cry for help left to fatal consequences. It’s clear that having somebody to talk to is vital when a child is in distress, so SPEAKup has committed to funding 1000 of these calls as part of our mission.
