A service of reflection for people affected by suicide is being held at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, home to the Warrington Wolves.

The event, from 7- 8.30pm on Thursday 13th February 2020, is being hosted by the Listening Ear’s Amparo service, which provides support following suicide.

Bringing people affected by suicide together from across Cheshire and Merseyside, the evening aims to provide a space for thought and reflection in supportive surroundings.

Richard Brown said: “We have been delivering AMPARO across Merseyside and Cheshire for the past 5 years. Amparo aims to reduce stigma, support bereaved families, and bring local services together to provide cohesive care and support when a suicide has occurred within a community.”

Suicide is an individual tragedy, life-altering for those bereaved and a traumatic event for the community and local services involved.

It is also a major public health issue and a leading cause of years of life lost.

To continue this community support, Amparo would like to invite all affected by suicide to attend the reflection at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in February, with an opportunity to meet others who have had similar experiences.

The evening will seek to continue the work of Amparo, ensuring all who have been affected by suicide are fully supported and are able to feel connected to their community.
