Samaritans of Coventry and District, a charity registered in England (1173728). Samaritans of Coventry and District is a recognised branch of Samaritans.

Coventry & District Samaritans is an independent charity, run entirely by unpaid volunteers.  We provide a free 24-hour helpline for people who are upset, troubled or who are feeling suicidal.   

In 2017 we were contacted over 33,000 times.   About 4,000 of the people we spoke or wrote to were contemplating taking their life or had already taken steps to do so when they contacted us.

We are proud holders of the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service This is the highest award that can be given to local volunteer groups in the UK and is equivalent to an MBE.

In addition to our helplines, we also:

  • Operate a Listeners Scheme at Onley and Rye Hill prisons, training and supporting prisoners to deliver a listening service within each prison. Our specially trained volunteers visit the prisons frequently and regularly liaise with prison staff on safer custody issues.
  • Deliver a formal Referral Scheme for patients in partnership with Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Partnership Trust
  • Offer listening skills training to schools, charities and other organisations within the area
  • Deliver regular talks, and training sessions, to a variety of organisations within the area upon request.
  • Run support groups, in conjunction with Coventry & Warwickshire Cruse, for people bereaved by suicide
