Supporting recovery

The Yorkshire Speak Their Name Suicide Memorial Quilt Project has been founded by two people bereaved to suicide, with the aim of supporting others bereaved by suicide across the region of Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Speak Their Name Suicide Memorial Quilt project has been inspired by the Speak Their Name Greater Manchester (GM) Suicide Memorial Quilt 2020.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eNCSZ-9kzs

Their project vision is to create a Yorkshire Speak Their Name Suicide Memorial Quilt that will create a lasting beautiful memory of loved ones who have died to suicide. This is a positive project and out of such tragedy will bring hope and something.

The quilt will be made up of individual 11 x 11 inch cotton squares individually designed by those who have been bereaved by suicide in Yorkshire. Each square will represent the unique memories of the family member or friend who has died and was from or lived in any of the Yorkshire regions. The final quilt once completed will be displayed in Yorkshire on 10th September 2022, International World Suicide Prevention Day.

The Yorkshire Speak Their Name Suicide Memorial Quilt will provide a positive opportunity for anyone bereaved to suicide in Yorkshire and support individuals in an inclusive open way through art and craft.

If you’ve been bereaved by suicide and like the idea of creating a cotton square with others who have also been bereaved by suicide, contributing to the Yorkshire Speak Their Name Quilt, why not come along to this three week course in a supportive and friendly environment.
