Welcome to the Jacob Abraham Foundation - registered charity 1170063

This foundation was set up after the death of our son in October 2015; Jacob was aged 24 and took his own life through suicide. His death deeply shocked our family and the local community raising questions about the complexities of mental health in young men particularly as Jacob presented as happy go lucky young man who was popular, funny, athletic, handsome and with a family who loved him dearly.

Our Aims

The Jacob Abraham Foundation aims to help prevent suicide through direct intervention with vulnerable people, raise awareness on mental health/suicide issues, promote positive mental health and support people bereaved through suicide in South Wales. Visit the 'What We Do' page to read about our 4 objectives.

Our Vision

The Foundation seeks to reduce the suicide rate.

Our Values

The Jacob Abraham Foundation seeks to protect vulnerable people and to educate and assist the local communities. Through a series of fund-raising events and collection boxes, the Foundation aims to raise funds in an accountable manner to support the communities who kindly donate.
