PAPYRUS Feb 2017 What we've been up to this month: We were thrilled to be selected as winners in the AVIVA Community Fund! Our Suicide Safer Communities volunteer project has been fully funded by AVIVA, and is now underway. This means we can support more young people experiencing thoughts of suicide – thank you to everyone who voted for PAPYRUS. Read more here PAPYRUS is 20 in 2017!
