Thanks to new funding from the City Bridge Foundation the charity Support After Murder and Manslaughter (SAMM) will be able to help hundreds of more people across London.

The charity is run by and for those who’ve lost loved ones to homicide and offers helps to anyone for as long as they need it.

The £100,000 grant has allowed for the charity to ramp up its services through training dozens of volunteers to help support people rebuild their lives and run in-person group sessions in the capital.

City Bridge Foundation Chairman Giles Shilson said: “The staff and volunteers who run SAMM have endured one of the most devastating things anyone can experience, which means they’re better placed than anyone to support those who’ve gone through the same thing.”
