Suicide is the leading cause of death on the tidal Thames.  The Tidal Thames Water Safety Forum (made up of the PLA, RNLI, Metropolitan Police, London Fire Brigade, HM Coastguard, London Ambulance Service, Corporation of London, Transport for London and the City of London Police) commissioned the Thames Skills Academy, partnering with the Samaritans, to develop training to equip attendees with skills and confidence to intervene should they encounter someone showing signs of suicidal behaviour on the Thames.

This course is aimed at everyone who is regularly by or on the Thames with the skills to intervene should they encounter someone showing signs of suicidal behaviour.

Our aim is that someone at every business and community and every pier, bank and bridge and along the Thames is trained in these life-saving skills.

What’s involved?  

The Safer Thames Intervention Training is a 3 hour, facilitated course delivered digitally via Zoom or WebEx or as a face-to-face session. The course is led by an expert Samaritans facilitator and uses a variety of tools to encourage interaction and group learning.
