We are a charity devoted to stopping teenagers and young people from taking their own lives

Get Involved

How you can help The OLLIE Foundation

Creating a reliable, sustainable flow of funds to deliver vital suicide intervention training is a massive ongoing challenge. As a new charity, we rely heavily on the fundraising efforts of our local Hertfordshire community. Could you help us with any of these?

Fundraising events

From Sky Dives to Paintballing, we’ve had some amazing fundraisers this year, and we are always looking for people to help run or initiate new events. Perhaps you could:

  • Run the London marathon?
  • Get a pub quiz together?
  • Devise your own personal challenge?

Our fundraising team is on hand, and very happy to offer help and support to any event you might want to organise on our behalf, so please contact The OLLIE Foundation with your ideas.

Corporate support

Office furniture, Stationery, IT and A/V equipment, dinner for two raffle prizes…. Your gift can make a valuable contribution to the work of The Ollie Foundation.

Donation of expertise

Your precious expertise and resources can make a real difference to our work.

Could you offer us some of your staff’s time? Could you offer free financial advice or IT consultancy?

Elections

As the election period looms we are reminded that we all have an opportunity to petition our representatives to promote and strive for change. This is especially apparent during election season with candidates canvassing door to door to speak to the electorate.

So what can you do to help?

We have created a handout with some of the important issues OLLIE is aiming to change. These are great starting points should a candidate knock on your door and ask for your views. Often we feel like we are not informed enough about certain issues to campaign for change but with the support of us at OLLIE we want to change that.

We ask that should you get the opportunity to raise these problems, you grab it and speak up. Often we feel powerless to generate significant change as 'ordinary' people but the world is changed one person at a time!!

We’d love to repay your generosity by helping to raise the visibility of your brand through our PR and social media channels. If you think you may be able to help, please contact The OLLIE Foundation today.

Please encourage people to talk to others about how they are feeling so they can either realise they are not alone in how they are feeling and start to get help.
