Great fun, Great achievement, Great Cause!

working to save young lives through awareness, prevention and compassion

Ireland still has one of the highest reported rates of death by suicide in the European Union with young males under 21 being most at risk but children as young as 9 years old have died by suicide too. Our experience is that the actual rate is much higher, and almost no school or community in the country is untouched by losing someone to suicide.

As we are going into a new year, 2020, we wanted to provide some information on how important each and every skydive fundraiser is to the work of Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland. We receive no state funding for this vital work so with the donations that Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland will receive from your skydive we can:

  • Provide full training resource packs to 10 more schools in remote areas, or
  • Provide 2 additional school visits reaching up to 600 students, or
  • Provide an extra 25 hours of counselling for priority at-risk teens, or
  • Provide an additional 3 weeks of FreeText Crisis Support,or
  • Arrange an additional teacher training course for 10 teachers

You can help us in our vital, life-saving work, and amaze yourself with one of the most thrilling experiences you can have, by joining our Skydive For Life 2020

Why we need your help

About Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland

All the funds we raise this year will go directly towards funding our school programmes. We rely totally on the generous support of the public as we receive no state funding. Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland, a registered Irish Charity (20070670), is one of the only national charities working specifically to raise awareness and prevent suicide amongst the young people of Ireland.

YSPI has only 2 full-time employees who are our highly-trainied facilitators running our Schools Programme. All other administrators including our Trustees are volunteers who donate their time. As of October 2019 the total cost of administering the charity was 13.5% so 86.5% of all funds raised can be used to support our vital work.
