Support Solihull’s Zero Suicide pledge

Solihull Council will be launching the ‘Solihull Zero Suicide Pledge’ on Monday 10 September to support World Suicide Prevention Day and we need your help to promote the Pledge.

The Pledge is all about looking after family, friends and colleagues, becoming more aware of any concerning changes and asking if they are ok.  There is free online training to help people spot the warning signs in others and details of support services are provided.

Please encourage your staff/volunteers and customers to sign up to the Pledge – our Communications Toolkit will help you do this. As an organisation you can sign the Pledge too at:

Suicide is a tragedy for those taking their own life and for their families and friends.  Whilst Solihull has a lower suicide rate compared to the national average, each death is one too many.  The Pledge is part of our action plan to reduce suicides and achieve our long-term ambition of ‘zero suicides’ in Solihull.

The Big Knit – Age UK Solihull

Knit little bobble hats for Age UK Solihull from September 2018-January 2019 and help raise money and awareness for Winter Warmth for older people.

The Big Knit raises money for Age UK Solihull so that we can help older people keep warm and well during the Winter months as well as decreasing loneliness amongst those that get together to create these lovely little hats. Get together with your friends and family to make these little creations.

Each hat that you send to us, raises 25p. Innocent smoothies then top their smoothie bottles with your lovely little hats in the shops – so keep an eye out for them next year! In the mean time, we will keep you updated on all the amazing hats coming into our office on here and on our social media.
