Central London Samaritans provides emotional support round the clock for anyone experiencing feelings of distress or despair. We provide a safe space, as volunteers we’re ordinary people, and keep all our conversations private. 

Visitors are welcome 365 days a year you don't need an appointment and the service is completely free of charge.

We are powered by volunteers and always on the look-out for warm, empathic people to help us continue our round the clock service. Attend one of our information hours to find out more about volunteering with Samaritans in Central London.

In addition to providing emotional support in our branch, we are active in the community reaching out to high risk groups including the homeless, young people, LGBT groups, those bereaved by suicide and prisoners. We are also available to respond at short notice to any form of crisis or emergency in London.

As a charity we rely entirely on donations from the public, businesses and other organisations. It costs around £500,000 a year to run our Central London Branch - a simple regular donation of £4 will allow us to answer a call for help - creating a lifeline for people struggling to cope. We have a number of partnerships and fundraising initiatives to help us to be there, round the clock, every single day of the year.

We also offer an excellent variety of meeting room space at highly competitive rates.
