Eligibility for a funded training place
This training has been funded by Public Health at Brighton & Hove City Council. To be eligible for a funded place you need to be working in the Brighton & Hove area with people in vulnerable or high risk groups. As a guide, training places are initially limited to 3 places per course, per organisation. However, for larger organisations further places may be available.
The following exclusion criteria apply to eligibility for funded places:
- People not working or volunteering within Brighton & Hove City
- Staff working in traditional Adult Social Care roles
- Employees of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
If you are unsure about your eligibility for a funded place, or would like further information please contact Grassroots Suicide Prevention directly.
SafeTALK - Suicide Alertness For Everyone - is a half-day course that can help you make a difference. Learn to identify people with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. This training prepares you to be a suicide alert helper by following the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe). These steps offer initial help in order to connect people having thoughts of suicide with more specialised support.

Getting to the Venue
The Centre is well served by the number 1/1A/21/21A buses (the St Cuthmans Church stop) and has a small car park with overflow on-street free parking. The building is next door to the St Cuthmans Church, and is made mainly from corrugated steel, with a large sign on the front saying “Café Open”. If entering from the street you need to go down some stairs to reach the entrance.

The course runs from 1.30pm to 5pm. It is important you arrive promptly– we promise to finish on time! We will have refreshment breaks during the session and drinks and biscuits will be provided.
If you are unable to attend due to illness you will need to send us a copy of a medical certificate for cancellation fees to be waived.
Delegate substitutions can be made at any time without charge.

2. PublicHealth Brighton & Hove City Council Funded Places
If you have been allocated a Public Health, Brighton & Hove City Council funded place it is our policy to charge a fee (currently £25 for half-day courses) for non-attendance with less than one week’s notice. This is because there are certain costs that we incur in organising the course and these are non-refundable at short notice. We have introduced this policy because if we are unable to demonstrate good attendance to our funders it will be more difficult to secure future funding for these courses.
Whole Courses can be a cost-effective way of training your team in your own venue. If your organisation is based in Brighton & Hove and works with at risk target groups we may be able to offer a discount based on the allocation of funded places. Please contact us to discuss your exact training needs, and possible discounts and funding options.
