Charity supporting those bereaved by suicide partners with tattoo studios

New research has shown that over a fifth of the UK have been impacted by suicide loss, yet many admit they have never sought help or support.

To mark International Survivors of Suicide Loss Awareness Day on November 18th, the charity Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SoBS) have partnered with London-based tattoo artist Rebecca Vincent, and 20 tattoo studios across the UK, offering free tattoos for survivors to honour their loved ones.

SoBS is the only UK peer-supporting suicide charity, and is also encouraging people to seek help within their community.

London Live spoke to Kerry Parkin, a board advisor from the charity.
