We are here to save lives, support communities and prevent suicide
We provide a range of services fundamental to our three main aims of prevention, intervention and supporting those bereaved by suicide.
Our team reaches some of the most vulnerable people in our society to support them at a time of need.
We also believe that educating future generations is key to changing cultures. This is why we also offer workshops to Primary, Secondary and educational establishments to equip our young people. We also offer training and workshops based around themes of mental health and suicide prevention to professionals.
Daniel O’Hare was 19 years of age when, without any warning, he took his own life. If U Care Share Foundation was created in memory of him. If you are struggling or know someone who has been bereaved by suicide, see how we can support you.
Our journey began in 2005. Daniel O’Hare was 19 years of age when, without any warning, he took his own life. He had no previous history of mental health problems nor had he shown any outward signs of his intentions.
Daniel was a normal young man, who was extremely popular and well known in his local community. He had a large amount of friends and a family that loved him dearly. He enjoyed football, spending time with friends and socialising. Daniel also had a job managing a family online retail business. To this day his family remain devastated by their loss and are still no nearer to understanding Daniel’s choice.
Daniel’s brothers Matthew and Ben, along with his cousin Sarah (then aged 10, 5 and 12) hoped to do something positive to try and prevent another family suffering a similar experience. They wanted to create a lasting memory to Daniel and started If U Care Share Foundation.
The family started selling wristbands at football clubs featuring the message if u care share and raised over £50,000 for mental health charities.
In 2011, we became a registered charity with three main aims: Prevention, intervention & support of those bereaved by suicide.
Our aim is to prevent anyone feeling the pain we felt as a family when we lost Daniel. We truly believe that talking can save lives.
