About Darlington Samaritans

Each year Darlington Samaritans supports:

  • 35,000 people over the phone
  • 3,000 via email
  • 3,150 over text
  • 30 people in person

The Branch plays an important role within the community and our volunteers are at the heart of local activities in support of the Charity. Last year, we trained 100 prisoners to provide listening services to fellow inmates within HMP/YOI Deerbolt and we work closely with local railway stations to help with suicide prevention programmes.
