Life Matters Suicide Prevention Trust was formed in July 2014 by concerned citizens wanting to make a difference to our suicide statistics in New Zealand.
The Trust was formed because there was very little support available to families bereaved by suicide or those that are suicidal. We provide much needed support and give a voice for the thousands of families devastated by suicide.
How do we operate?
The Trust does funding applications to cover all their operational costs. Many generous sponsors have helped giving funds and also helping out with fundraising campaigns. We welcome donations which go towards training in suicide prevention and supporting those in need.
How do we serve our community?
Our aim is to reduce the suicides in our country by promoting suicide prevention strategies, educating and supporting our community, raising awareness about suicide breaking the stigma and supporting those bereaved by it.
