What We Do…

Support Services

  • FAMS operates a grass roots Befriending Service.

Telephone and Email support providing free and confidential support and advice.

Befrienders will have experienced the loss of a loved one through murder and suicide. Alternatively they will have themselves attempted suicide or had suicidal thoughts

Raising Awareness

  • FAMS is committed to raising awareness, of the devastating impact of murder and suicide within families, friends and communities.
  • FAMS will continue work in partnership with similar charities and agencies, to raise the profile and availability of Suicide Early Intervention and Prevention programs.
  • FAMS will continue to campaign for a change in social attitude towards the victims of murder and suicide.
