Our incredible Founding Chair stepped down at the beginning of 2021. We are looking for someone to take our vision and make it their own.

We hope you feel inspired to consider working with us, and if you feel you bring the skills to be our next Chair, we will be delighted to receive an application from you. For more information please download the Chair Appointment Packet.

The Chair will join SASP at a critical time. Our 2020-2024 strategy is in full swing and we are well on the way to leading the implementation of suicide bereavement support services in every area of England, commissioned by NHS England. Now is a time to raise awareness for the need for sustainable support beyond 2024, and secure SASP’s future.

The Chair will work alongside an experienced Executive Lead, and a small team, as well as senior staff at Samaritans. Our Chair will also be instrumental in ensuring we are trusted and recognised externally and internally as a fundamentally well run, managed and governed organisation.
