CALM & Together for Short Lives
The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against male suicide – the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. CALM runs a free and confidential helpline and webchat – 7 hours a day, 7 days a week – for anyone who needs to talk about life’s problems, as well as supporting those bereaved by suicide and working in the community to reengage with people before they reach the point of crisis.
The charity actively campaigns via the media to spread awareness of suicide and challenge male stereotypes, using cultural touch points like art, music, sport and comedy.
Together for Short Lives
Together for Short Lives is the UK’s leading charity for the 49,000 children living with life-limiting conditions.
The charity wants to help every child and family living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition get the very best care and support they can so they can make the most of every moment together. Many of these children have complex conditions and need specialist care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Together for Short Lives runs a helpline to support families and champions improvements in palliative care, supporting a network of children’s hospices across the UK.
