Medway Samaritans provides confidential non-judgemental emotional support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For many people, we are like the fourth emergency service, but we receive no funding from central government. As an independent charity, we depend entirely on voluntary support and financial donations to continue to provide a service each year.

It costs us:

  • £1.42 to answer each call
  • £77 each day to run our service
  • £14,000 per year to provide one emergency phoneline
