The National Centre for Suicide Prevention Training UK CIC is a community interest company and not-for-proﬁt social enterprise, created by a consultancy of experienced international trainers in the ﬁeld of suicide prevention, we founded in 2011.
We have been working in the UK to build suicide-safer communities for many years and in recognition of the lack of dedicated resources to suicide prevention training programmes, we created a formal international initiative, on a not-for-proﬁt basis.
The National Centre for Suicide Prevention Training UK CIC is proud to have forged and developed lasting collaborative relationships with many of the UK’s leading suicide prevention specialists, all sharing the common beliefs, values and hope, that all communities can be made safer, from suicide.
Community Interest Companies (CIC) are limited companies, with special additional features, created for the use of people who want to conduct a business or other activity for community beneﬁt, and not for private advantage.
This is achieved by a “community interest test” and “asset lock”, which ensure that the CIC is established for community purposes and the assets and proﬁts are dedicated to these purposes. Registration of a company as a CIC has to be approved by the Regulator who also has a continuing monitoring and enforcement role.
