Be a Christmas Star and help people find some light in their darkest times
Christmas may be a wonderful time of year, but for some people it's also a time when feelings of loneliness, depression and anxiety can be overwhelming. For many people struggling to cope, ours will be the only helpline open when other services are closed.
Every call we answer could be the one that saves or changes someone's life – the call that ends with someone finding the strength to carry on.
By making a donation or fundraising for Samaritans this Christmas, you can help more people find a glimmer of light on their darkest days.
