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.

    1st June 2018
    Ken Bamford has been on an epic journey over the past couple of months. Travelling on two wheels he started in Belfast and cycled all the way to Bilbao in Northern Spain, took in the European Rugby final then on to meet up with volunteers from the recently opened Samaritans in Gibraltar who are having a Family Fun Day on 2nd of June. Over 2000 miles travelled and over £2000 raised (so far). An epic journey and a fantastic achievement, all to raise funds for Belfast Samaritans and for Irish Festival Samaritans.
