OUR CHOSEN CHARITY FOR 2022

R;pple Suicide Prevention

We are honoured as an independent Estate Agents to have the opportunity to give back to our local community. For 2022 we have dedicated ourselves to supporting R;pple Suicide Prevention and the incredible work that they do, spreading positive messages about mental health and creating life saving technology for those that need it most. 


R;pple is an interceptive tool designed to present a visual prompt when a person searches for harmful keywords or phrases relating to the topic of self-harm or suicide.  These phrases include any words or terminology which have been identified as displaying potentially damaging online content.

OUR COMMITMENT TO

R;pple Suicide Prevention

Through our quarterly donations and fundraising events such as Mark's Dolomites Challenge and Josh's Game, R;pple have enhanced their life saving technology.

R;pple are now nearing their objective of releasing an app-based version of their software and have begun to expand their services overseas.

Fundraising efforts like ours are so incredibly important, they allow the charity to look into offering a global solution to spread their important message and service as far as possible.

R;pple's mission is to ensure immediate mental health support is presented to individuals following harmful online searches via innovative technology and presenting help and resources to prevent self-harm and suicide.

With the help of Mark's Dolomites challenge, Alice has recently aquired a van, which she plans to use visiting prolific locations around the United Kingdom, to offer a listening ear and a hot drink to those who need it.  

Sometimes all you need is someone to talk to, and a brew always helps.

OUR CHOSEN CHARITY FOR 2022

R;pple Suicide Prevention

Their Story

I lost my son, Josh, on 25th November 2020 to suicide at 21 years old. After examining Josh's phone, my daughter, Alice, found that he had been researching techniques to take his own life via harmful internet searches. The content available online following a search of this nature currently provides mental health support in one format; a helpline. 

Mental health is a serious and urgent issue. Online searches for suicide methods have increased by 50% in the last 2 years with searches for suicide support lines also up by 150% since January 2019. (Semrush, 2021) 
 
To ensure more help and support is given to individuals searching for harmful content online, we set up R;pple Suicide Prevention. R;pple is a browser extension interceptive tool designed to ensure more help and support is provided to individuals who are conducting searches relating to self-harm or suicide. R;pple consists of a message of hope as well as a selection of mental health resources in a range of different options (call, text, webchat) from free, established and 24/7 charity services.
The Impact
To date, our technology has been downloaded over 130,000 times, with schools, colleges, universities, parents, carers and charities able to download R;pple, free of charge (fee required from businesses)
22 external individuals have approached R;pple to inform us that the tool intercepting them online at their most vulnerable point has saved their life and that they are now receiving mental health support.
R;pple has won 8 awards in the mental health space, after only officially launching in September 2021.
R;pple has gained significant UK media coverage, reaching over 8.5 million people and appearing on national television, radio and press.
