Samaritans helped me turn my life around
Every single day, around 16 people decide to end their own life across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
We believe that by providing a space for people to explore their feelings,
we can help them find a way forward.
But we’re a charity, and it’s your kind donations that keep our helpline open.
Someone contacts us once every five seconds, and the conversation that follows can have a dramatic impact on that person’s life.
Sometimes, it can help them decide to continue living. But we can only be there, ready to respond, with your support.
We help people by giving them a safe place to talk to us any time they like, in their own way, and off the record – about whatever’s getting to them. Hear from some of our callers how we helped them.
Four in every five people who contact us say they would talk to us again.
We are proud and fortunate to have over 20,000 volunteers in 201 branches across the UK. But the cost of maintaining this structure is over £10million a year.
