‘Tomorrow is too late’: suicide prevention support for people with no fixed address

Homelessness, housing insecurity and poor housing can increase suicide risk and there is a need to improve suicide prevention activity for people experiencing this.

The Suicide Prevention Consortium, fellow members of the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, heard experiences relating to suicide prevention support, from an inability to access support to poor treatment within services. They also heard about the different types of support that people experiencing homelessness need and the important role that the community has in suicide prevention support for them.

Together with people with lived experience they have developed recommendations that focus on improving suicide prevention support for people with no fixed address.
