Managing the risk and impact of suicide within the homelessness sector

People experiencing homelessness are at a higher risk of ending their lives by suicide than the general population. The resources below have been developed to support organisations to manage the risk and impact of suicide. There are resources for people experiencing homelessness, workers and managers as well as a range of shared resources and good practice examples.

This work was produced in partnership with Pathway and Groundswell and EASL, and has been funded through the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, jointly managed and funded by Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and UK Health Security Agency. For more information, please visit: https://www.england.nhs.uk/hwalliance

Our resources are split across three pages.
