Clifton Suicide Prevention Bristol was started by Michael Everett in August 2018. After reading about a recent death he was inspired to set up a patrol group aimed at helping vulnerable people.
“We are a team of volunteers that patrol the banks of Clifton to talk to people and help anyone that may be looking to commit suicide and provide a listening ear.
“We currently patrol on a Friday night and will soon be expanding the cover the weekend and some weekdays. We always have a mix of males and females on patrol. We provide uniform, great training and the confidence to help in a crisis.
“Our volunteers come from from diverse backgrounds with a passion to help you. We currently have over 25 volunteers across the organisation that patrol Circular Road from the Sea Walls to the Observatory. We go out in teams of 4 and only ask for one Friday night a month.”
