Cork Samaritans


The Cork branch of Samaritans opened its doors September 1972 and currently has 180 active volunteers of all ages who are here round the clock, every single day of the year.

As a result of the current situation we are sorry to advise you that our face to face service is temporarily suspended due to the coronavirus, Covid-19.

We are sad to have had to make this decision and will update this webpage as things change.

In the meantime, we are still here for you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year through our telephone and email services.
