Welcome to Ian's Chain and thanks for taking the time to read about us and what we do. Ian's Chain was formed in 2013 after the loss of Ian Savill aged 23, please read about Ian on his page.
This charity was set up to help those who have tragically lost a loved one to suicide and we do that in many ways. We do pride ourselves on our total confidentiality so you can be assured we will not share any personal information.
Due to the Coronavirus, we took the tough decision to postpone the next SavFest but with pretty much the same line up.
So we're happy to announce the new date of 30th & 31st July 2021. Thanks to John at The Vic Bikers Pub for hosting us.
Hope we see you there.
We are delighted and proud to announce that we are working with the very talented artist, Kealey Farmer, in conjunction with Wishbone Publishing. We made contact with Kealey on a personal level for a piece she produced in 2015 and have been in contact ever since. Kealey’s best friend Amanda, lost her brother Anthony to suicide in 2002 so she really understands the pain of losing someone to suicide. Kealey says “as an artist, I’ve been contacted many times from people who have lost a loved one to suicide and for whatever reason, they have connected to something in my work . . . I’m so honoured to be a part of Ian’s Chain, it’s incredibly inspirational . . . The message we want to get over is, if you think someone is struggling, reach out to them, never give up”
Any money raised from the sale of this wonderful piece Here for You Always will purchase ASIST courses giving attendees the confidence to support those in crisis and to allow the person to decide to live.
