The SAIL project offers support for people who have been bereaved by suicide.

Those bereaved by suicide are significantly at risk of dying by suicide compared to the general population. Hence, the importance and need of this project.

It greatly focuses on supporting an individual in the immediacy of their loss, both emotionally and practically.

Our liaison worker will be able to reach out to offer support within a 4 –day period of the referral.



“Suicide bereavement is multi-faceted and has been succinctly described as grief with the volume turned up”

Winston’s Wish (2011)




What support is offered?

Support is person centred and will depend on the need of the particular individual. This could be things such as:

- Providing a listenting ear

- Liaising with Coroner’s office, Police, funeral directors etc.

- Explaining legal proceedings

- Signposting and navigating around other sources of support that are available locally

- Emotional and moral support prior to and during the inquest



Who can access SAIL?

The Sail project is available to anyone over the age of 18 who lives in Norfolk and Waveney area. The majority of our referrals come from Coroner’s office, however we do accept referrals from other agencies and self- referrals.
