A service which provides support to those bereaved by a suspected suicide has been commissioned in more areas across Lancashire, offering vital support to local people thanks to national funding aimed at preventing suicides in the region and will launch on Monday 3rd June.
The support provided by AMPARO is already helping local people in Blackburn with Darwen, Hyndburn and Burnley and has now been commissioned in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre. AMPARO can support anyone affected by a suspected suicide, this can be family members, friends or colleagues. The service provides support in a range of ways including one to one individual support, help with media enquiries, support and guidance up to and including the inquest and signposting to further services.
The details of AMPARO and information about the support they offer will be shared with all front-line workers who are most likely to be in contact with those affected by a suspected suicide including GPs, firefighters, paramedics and police officers.
