Ennis SAMARITANS ANSWER 40,995 CALLS FOR HELP IN THE LAST YEAR
-Demand for Samaritans service highest during loneliest hours-
Ennis Samaritans answered 40,995 calls for help in the last 12 months, with most of these calls received out of hours when other support is not available. These call details were released in the 2015-2016 Impact Report covering Samaritans’ work in Ireland.
Claire Cremin, Director of Ennis & Clare branch, said:
“We know that people don’t just struggle to cope between the hours of 9 to 5. The statistics released in our Impact Report 2015-2016 show many calls come through to the service throughout the evening and early morning hours, a time that can be lonely and isolating for those experiencing feelings of distress. Samaritans are the only organisation whose volunteers are available round the clock, providing a beacon of light to those struggling during the loneliest hours.”
