They designed a wristband that carried our message “If U Care Share” to encourage young people to “SHARE” their problems instead of burying them within.
After receiving support from Suzanne, a family friend who also happened to be a Samaritan, the children began to raise awareness and fundraised for this organisation. They eventually accumulated over £48,000, which was used for young people’s projects within the Samaritan’s North East region.
Now If U Care Share Foundation (IUCSF) is a Charity (Reg. Charity Number 1142001) in its own right.
It has 3 main aims: prevention, intervention and support of those bereaved by suicide.
