Lifeline Tasmania's StandBy Support after Suicide provides comfort teddies to individuals they support who are impacted by a suicide. These teddies are knitted by compassionate people from our community who do so in order to express “You are not alone” in this.

If you would like to knit a teddy for this program you can find the pattern here.

StandBy - Support After Suicide is delivered under the auspices of United Synergies.  For more information on United Synergies, visit
