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.
We have been working in Coventry since 1964 and currently have 166 volunteers. 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.
See how the Coronavirus outbreak is affecting us. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers and lots of disinfectant wipes, our telephone and email helplines are still available 24 hours a day
