PIPS Suicide Prevention Charity have launched an out-reach service in an effort to reach out to individuals who may be isolated. The series of ‘Comforting Cups’ is hosted throughout Northern Ireland in partnership with our Charity Partners Starbucks.

PIPS aim is to keep communities connected, encouraging people to have meaningful conversations and build emotional resilience. We hope to do this by having a chat in Starbucks stores across Northern Ireland over a nice hot beverage.

Pop into a participating Starbucks store near you to have a chat with one of the PIPS team.
