Volunteer For PAPYRUS

Volunteering For Us

PAPYRUS believes that young suicide is preventable and that many young lives can be saved by building suicide-safer communities across the UK. By equipping people with the tools and skills needed to identify and respond to a young person at risk we can all have a part to play in breaking down the stigma around suicide.

We need passionate and committed volunteers to help us do this. Here are some ways in which you can increase awareness in your local community and help us to save more young lives.

Awareness Raising

Awareness raising is an important and helpful way to inform people in your local community about PAPYRUS and suicide prevention. It is a particularly good way to get involved if you prefer a more flexible role that fits around your other commitments. Activities could include following and promoting PAPYRUS on social media to raise awareness of our services within your own online networks. This might also include putting up posters in your local GP surgery or simply wearing a PAPYRUS t-shirt to the gym. You know your networks best and can help us to spread our message further.


Champions are volunteers who help PAPYRUS raise awareness of suicide prevention by delivering a 30 minute presentation within their local community. Our Champions also help out at events such as PRIDE, mental health market places, and occasionally come with us to conferences. If you like meeting new people and speaking publicly about our cause then this opportunity could be for you.
