#HopeForLifeUK 2021 – how you can contribute

If you’re struggling with your mental health visit our Resources page

#HopeForLifeUK is a campaign of projects, which you can participate in to help prevent suicides. 800,000 + people take their own lives, globally, every year, that’s one person every 40 seconds. The most recent Public Health England annual statistics report that 6591 people died by suicide in 2019 – Jordan was that 1!

This is your opportunity to do something practical and amazing during 2021 to help us prevent suicides by donating your money, time or skills or all three if you can – we have to reverse this trend which is happening to children as well as adults. You don’t want to be the next person who receives that knock on the door.

As part of our ‘Zero Suicide Community‘ strategy, #HopeForLifeUK 2021 is engaging with communities and businesses to help us deliver a range of practical, life-saving projects. We will be showcasing the outcomes of these projects at The Jordan Legacy’s #HopeForLifeUK Day conference on December 1st 2021

Projects we need your support with please

Your contribution, big or small, can help us save lives by preventing suicides in your community or company.

How it works

All our current #HopeForLife projects for 2021 are live and can be found here on the Investors in Community website 

Investors In Community (IIC) is an organisation, founded in 2016, to enable individuals and businesses to provide financial, as well as skills, volunteering and gifting support to charitable organisations. In this sense, the donor and charity are working in true partnership. By supporting an IIC project, businesses and individuals can earn Community Credits and their charitable actions are verified by IIC, which helps towards your company’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) rating and has a similar reward benefit to an individual who wants to evidence, perhaps to a future employer, that they contribute time or money to charitable causes in this way.

NB: When you click on any of the above links, you will need to create an IIC business or personal account (takes approximately 2 minutes). This allows IIC to award you with community credits each time you donate or volunteer your time. IIC will also keep you informed of our and other charitable projects you might consider supporting.

Suicide is a practical act and at The Jordan Legacy CIC, we believe that however challenging our world becomes, whatever pandemics, recessions, climate concerns and life experiences are thrown our way, by taking practical actions we can provide people with more hope and by doing so, prevent most suicides from happening.

What does The Jordan Legacy CIC do?

We provide communities, businesses and individuals with inspiration and guidance to enable them to be able to contribute ideas and then turn those ideas into practical actions – actions which help create psychologically safer places for people to live and work in.

Watch our #HopeForLife UK Day launch event video

This is a recording of our #HopeForLifeUK launch event, which took place on January 21st 2021. More than 350 people registered to attend, with many contacting us afterwards with feedback such as “superb event” and “incredibly motivating and thought provoking” and “I’m feeling moved and encouraged”.

If you can find time to find a quiet space, grab a coffee and press play, you’ll see why so many people were inspired by this event and then got in touch to ask how they can contribute to our #HopeForLifeUK initiative during  2021.

 Workshops and speaker sessions

 If you’re struggling with your mental health visit our Resources page

The Jordan Legacy has created a series of 60-minute or half-day online or in-house workshops on the topic of maintaining optimal mental wellbeing, coping with poor mental health, supporting yourself or others when mental health becomes a concern, suicide prevention, crisis intervention and post-vention support.

  • Spot the signs that you or someone might be struggling with your mental health
  • Remove the stigma and feel comfortable talking openly about your mental health
  • Understand that you are not alone – normalising the discussion around mental health and suicide
  • Recognise why talking is important and what the potential consequences of not talking could be.
  • Support colleagues, friends, family who might be struggling with their mental health
  • Find ways to improve your own mental wellbeing
  • What to do in a crisis

These are just some of the topics covered in our lived experience workshops.
NB: Our workshop facilitators are not NHS registered or medically qualified but are well-researched and in all cases have a lived experience relating to poor mental health and issues relating to suicide

However, in December 2019, his world was turned upside down when his son Jordan took his own life following an ongoing battle with depression and anxiety.

In March 2020, Steve founded The Jordan Legacy CIC, an organisation committed to preventing suicide, as part of the global ‘Zero Suicide Community’. A member of the National Suicide Prevention Alliance, he now talks to business leaders, employees and communites about preventing suicides in their community and how they can spot the signs of poor mental health and improve the wellbeing of those they work and live amongst.
