Team 34 are our National Dell EMC Community Impact Award winners 2019. This award recognises the positive contribution young people make to their local community.
“Suicide is a big killer where we live. In fact every single one of us had been affected by it. We wanted it to stop.
"We contacted PIPS, a local suicide prevention charity, and they told us that most of the community programmes were designed by adults, for adults; it was obvious we needed one for young people."
"We called our programme HOPE, which stands for Hold On, Pain Ends, and created powerpoint presentations, videos and breakout activities designed to help build young people's resilience and their ability to support each other.” – Laura, Team 34
"Getting word out about HOPE was important, so we organised a launch night and got it promoted via PIPS and other organisations to inspire as many people as possible to come.
– Matthew, Team 34
“HOPE is now being delivered all over Northern Ireland as there is no other programme like it. It was a pretty amazing thing to be a part of. In fact, Team was an amazing thing to be a part of.” - Aoife, Team 34
