Speak Their Name – in person session

Kirklees Recovery College, Kirklees Recovery & Wellbeing College, Pathways, Nettleton Rd, Mirfield, WF14 9AQ

Hope Street Resource Centre, Hope Street Halifax HX1 5DW

This project is for family and friends bereaved by suicide. The project aims to create a Memorial Quilt that will create a lasting beautiful memory of loved ones who have died to suicide.

The quilt will be made up of individual cotton squares individually designed by participants representing the unique memories of the family member or friend who has died. The final quilt once completed will be displayed in Yorkshire on 10th September 2022, International World Suicide Prevention Day.

You can bring your own materials and ideas to create your square. We will be there to help and assist and also bring a wealth of resources to be used / take away. There are many options of how to complete a square and some that don’t include sewing!

The Yorkshire Speak Their Name Suicide Memorial Quilt Project has been founded by people with a lived experience of bereavement by suicide with the aim of support other bereaved in the same way.

This project has been inspired by the Speak Their Name Greater Manchester (GM) Suicide Memorial Quilt 2020.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eNCSZ-9kzs
