5 Ways to support CALM this Christmas

Whether you’re looking for a way to escape the house for a couple of hours, a new year’s resolution, or just finding all that goodwill infectious, here’s some ways to support CALM this Christmas and beyond. 

1. Do something you love

If you’re umming and ahhing over a New Year’s goal, fancy a challenge, or want to remember a loved one, do it for CALM. In 2018, CALM’s helpline and webchat directly prevented 675 suicides, a feat only made possible by #TeamCALM’s dedication and determination. Join them. There’s no end of ways you can get involved – from running a marathon, to dirt-biking across the Sahara. The sky’s the limit.

Head to our Fundraising Hub for some ideas and to find out more.


Volunteering for CALM is different. Spreading the CALM message at gigs, theatre productions, festivals and a whole host of other places, our volunteers make our life-saving services possible.

3. Visit the CALM Store 

Looking to spend some of that Christmas prezzie cash in an all round good way? Introducing the CALM Store. There’s books, music,  jewellery, cosmetics and loads more, from retailers including To Be Frank and Flower Up.  There really is something for everyone – and a percentage of all proceeds go towards funding CALM’s life-saving services.
