Where your money goes
Why we need your support
Every 6 seconds, someone contacts us. Our team of trained volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
2020 was a year like no other. Many people will be feeling isolated this year due to social distancing. They may have lost a loved one to coronavirus or feel anxious about the economic crisis
For many people struggling to cope, we will be one of the only helplines open when many other services are closed. The only chance they have to share their story and their pain
Every call for help 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. And it begins with you
Everything that’s been said about our service being needed more than ever is true. Most of my calls were intense. I was so glad I could be there. And the callers were all so grateful too.
