Community Engagement Programme

At STORM® we believe that no one should profit from another person’s distress.

Surplus income generated from our training packages is reinvested into the community through our Community Engagement Programme.

This includes: free conferences and seminars; small grants to support grassroots suicide prevention and related work; and subsidised and pro-bono training.
