What We Do

As well as providing core Samaritan services to our community we also have a number of outreach activities to help us to reach people and groups who may be at increased risk of suicide and to engage with the wider public in other ways

Who We Are

Over 200 volunteers drawn from across the community and from all walks of life come together to support the people of our community whenever they need us. Since 1961, Samaritans has served the people of Greater Belfast and beyond. We're open every day - 24/7 by phone, email and text. Our door opens 9am-10pm every day of the year.
