History

A Brief History and Overview of SAMM National

SAMM (Support after Murder and Manslaughter) is a registered charity offering support to those bereaved by the murder or manslaughter (homicide) of a family member or close friend. Parents of Murdered Children (POMC) Started off within The Compassionate Friends and in 1988 POMC registered as a separate charity. Then in 1992/4 they changed the name to Support After Murder & Manslaughter (SAMM) reflecting the fact that whole families and sometimes the wider community are affected by a homicide. On the 7th March 2003 SAMM National registered the name and logo of Support After Murder & Manslaughter (SAMM) as an official Trade Mark for the Charity.
