Support After Murder
SAMM is a national UK Charity (No 1000598) supporting families bereaved by Murder and Manslaughter. We also provide
advice and training to many agencies on issues relevant to the traumatically bereaved.
If you have
been bereaved by murder or manslaughter you may find it difficult to make the first call, regardless of how long it is since you were bereaved. Perhaps you can ask a family member, a friend, or your
Police family liaison officer to make the call on your behalf.
After Murder And Manslaughter SAMM have no membership fee; we are supported by charitable trusts, individuals, business and industrial donations and by members fundraising activities. Please note our
database of members is absolutely confidential and will not be revealed to anyone.
Please – do
not feel you are alone. You will talk to people who will care for you, and understand your grief, all our SAMM volunteers are themselves bereaved as a result of homicide.
