What people are saying about us
“After a tragic death that impacted all workers within a team, I reached out to Amparo for support.
As with any death, it provokes everyone’s own personal experience of previous bereavements, making it difficult to navigate. Amparo brought their expert knowledge and were able to respond in a timely manner, offering a range of options for support. The team chose to come together in a virtual safe space to reflect and this was facilitated by one of the team at Amparo. The whole of the team valued this opportunity and reported that it assisted them.
I would urge anyone in similar circumstances to explore the support on offer.”
“Never did I imagine in my wildest dreams I would need support from Amparo.
On 20th January 2022, my Mum’s birthday, I discovered she’d taken her own life. It was like an explosion, the pain and devastation will never leave me. I also had to go through to the hospital to tell my dad, who was in hospital with Covid. My sisters and our families just couldn’t believe what had happened. I remember that evening getting a call from the corners office telling me they had passed my details over to Amparo. At that moment I couldn’t even imagine how I’d be able to speak about finding mum and didn’t think I’d be able to talk.
I received a call from our local liaison worker; such a lovely lady, I knew from the tone of her voice, she truly cared about our new situation and simply wanted to be there for me. From January and ongoing we arrange a chat and she listens and most importantly comforts and reassures me that all the feelings I’m having and have had are normal and I’m not alone.
I truly don’t know what I’d have done without the support from Amparo.
To have Amparo support for my dad, sister & myself has been so very important. I thank everyone who’s helped us from the bottom of my heart.
If you’re struggling with the effects from bereavement by suicide do not hesitate to contact Amparo. This remarkable team in my opinion are professional, friendly and most importantly caring.
