SAFEGUARDING CONFERENCE 2023 - KEYNOTE SPEAKER: 3 Dads Walking

Biography:

In 20213 bereaved fathers, Tim, Mike and Andy walked over 300 miles in memory of their daughters, Sophie Beth and Emily who had each taken their own lives. ‘3 Dads Walking’ set out to raise awareness of suicide prevention and to raise vital funds in support of PAPYRUS.

Keynote:

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people under 35 in the UK and PAPYRUS believes that many of these are preventable. During the walk in 2021, 3 Dads Walking met many suicide-bereaved parents, who all asked “if suicide is the biggest threat to our children’s lives, why is no one talking about it?”

3 Dads Walking are now campaigning to ensure that suicide prevention is embedded into the curriculum. Their aim is to engage the government in introducing age-appropriate education on suicide awareness so that children and young people develop the skills and knowledge to help themselves and their peers in the future.
