SUICIDE LOSS SUPPORT PEERS

We currently have a team of SLS Peers available for support. SLS Peers are not counsellors and meet with people in a different way to counselling. They have lived experience of loss to suicide and are at a place on their journey to offer support from this place. You might meet for a cuppa or a walk, or come to GSS, you can work this out together.

If you would like to be linked with a peer we encourage you to get in touch with our Suicide Loss Support Coordinator, Jeanette Jones, to find out more. 

 To learn more about the programme and to meet the current team please download our booklet or take a look at the video.

Join Our Peer Support Team

Grief Support Services are inviting people with lived experience of suicide bereavement to express interest in joining our Suicide Loss Service Peer Team. These volunteer peers provide one-on-one time supporting other people who have also been bereaved by suicide. The peers assist with emotional and practical support and full training is given. We welcome all adult applicants, with particular availability for male volunteers and people from Maori and Pasifika communities. Contact us on 07 578 4480 or email our Suicide Loss Support Coordinator, Jeanette Jones, for details through the link below.
