Achieve together

Achieve together is a social care provider organisation. We support adults with learning disabilities, autistic adults, people with significant mental health challenges, and acquired brain injury.

How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it?

Our Director of Wellbeing and Head of Forensic Mental Health oversee dynamic risk registers to support those people with a foreseeable risk of self-harm and/or suicidal ideation or attempts. We have internal nurse trainers who provide specific training to our support teams, and work alongside those teams and involved local professionals to ensure effective risk assessment and management.
