It’s National Helpline Day!

Did you know 60 million calls are made to helplines in the UK every year?

Marking the important role of Helplines, Friday 23rd of February is Helplines Awareness Day, and the focus is to raise awareness of helplines and highlight the huge difference this support makes to so many people’s lives. Upsettingly, 55% of helplines report an increase in crisis/suicidal calls since 2019.

We know our Helpline team are amazing. Thank you to them for all they do!
