Changing lives in partnership with PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide

PAPYRUS is the UK charity dedicated to the prevention of suicide and the promotion of positive mental health and emotional wellbeing in young people, with the belief that no young person should have to struggle alone with thoughts of suicide. CTD Tiles are proud to be partnering with this amazing charity.

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people, of all genders, under the age of 35 in the UK.

PAPYRUS aim to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by shattering the stigma around suicide and equipping young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour.

Our fundraising so far

We kickstarted our fundraising efforts at the annual CTD Conference earlier this year, raising £2,736 for PAPYRUS via kind donations from colleagues and suppliers.

We are looking forward to getting involved in a range of fundraising initiatives over the coming months.

"During Covid the issues of mental health have become more prevalent across the UK, and something which at CTD we take very seriously.

The reason we chose to partner with Papyrus is recognising that mental health at any stage in life is tough; therefore if we can positively alter the course of one young life by raising both awareness and funds, then this can only be a worthwhile cause."

Mike Dent, Managing Director, CTD Tiles

How you can help

We are supporting PAPYRUS in their mission to spread HOPE and help save young lives, with our goal to raise £10,000 in 12 months, helping PAPYRUS create suicide safer communities.

Every £5 raised can help pay for a potentially life-saving contact to HOPELINEUK; the charity’s confidential advice and support line for young people struggling with thoughts of suicide, and anyone worried about a young person.
