‘This is honestly my lifeline and I think quite frankly I would not be alive today without this support.’ (Visitor Feedback, 2018)
16 people take their own life every day in the UK. The Listening Place was set up in 2016 to try and change this and help those who are suffering in silence. TLP provides confidential, ongoing and face-to-face support to those who are having suicidal thoughts. Our warm and non-judgemental volunteers will meet with the victims and engage with their feelings to provide support during their darkest times.
In 2016 we were open two days a week and supported around 150 people. We are now open seven days a week from 9am to 9pm, 52 weeks a year with 450 trained volunteers. We estimate we will support almost 1500 suicidal people in 2019 from all over London. We now also have the impact data that demonstrates our service significantly reduces an individual’s suicidality and increases their feelings of support.
