To mark World Suicide Prevention Day, Suffolk’s suicide prevention steering group has today announced it will be launching a new service to support individuals, families and others bereaved by suicide.
The 12-month pilot service will be joint funded by Suffolk County Council (SCC) Public Health and Ipswich & East Suffolk and West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). The total funding for the service is £30,000, with Suffolk County Council providing £22,000 and CCGs funding £8,000.
A series of sessions are being held this month to gather people’s views on improving speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) services for Suffolk’s children and young people.
More than 10% of children and young people have long-term SLCN, which create barriers to communication or learning in everyday life. Only 20% of pupils with SLCN gained grade 4/c or above in English and Maths at GCSE, compared with 64% of all pupils.
