OUR CHOSEN CHARITY THE SAMARITANS
Every day, Samaritans volunteers respond to around 10,000 calls for help.
We’re here, day or night, for anyone who’s struggling to cope, who needs someone to listen without judgement or pressure.
Samaritans is not only for the moment of crisis, we’re taking action to prevent the crisis.
We give people ways to cope and the skills to be there for others. And we encourage, promote and celebrate those moments of connection between people that can save lives.
We offer listening and support to people and communities in times of need.
In prisons, schools, hospitals and on the rail network, Samaritans are working with people who are going through a difficult time and training others to do the same.
Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy, and Samaritans’ vision is that fewer people die by suicide.
That’s why we work tirelessly to reach more people and make suicide prevention a priority.
OUR CHOSEN CHARITY COPPAFEEL
CoppaFeel! exists to educate and remind every young person in the UK that checking their boobs isn’t only fun, it could save their life.
All About Us
We are the first breast cancer charity in the UK to solely create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling the knowledge and tools they need to get to know their bodies. We like to talk about a serious message in a light-hearted way, empowering people to start healthy habits for life.
We want everyone to have the best possible chance of surviving breast cancer. Ideally we want to live in a world where all breast cancers are diagnosed at the earliest stage possible, at which treatments are more effective and survival rates are higher.
Although our main focus is on breast cancer education, we also instigated the #RETHINKCANCER Campaign, as we strongly believe young people should be taught about all cancers and how to lead healthy lives from a young age.
To ensure all breast cancers are diagnosed early and correctly by…
Encouraging you to check your boobs and pecs regularly from a young age.
Educating you on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.
Empowering you to seek advice from a doctor if symptoms persist.
