Where your money goes
Why we need your support this Christmas
We are expecting to answer over 250,000 calls for help this December. That’s why it’s so important that Samaritans are there to listen, day and night.
2021 continued to be a year of isolation and upheaval for many. But we managed to keep our helpline services open 24 hours a day, even at the height of the pandemic.
We received millions of calls for help this year – many dealing with coronavirus on top of the usual stresses of life. With other services stretched to their limit, Samaritans is a lifeline to many.
By making a gift today, you could help someone find light in the darkness this Christmas and start to change their story. You could save a life.
The volunteer who listened to me was so patient, and they helped me reach a powerful realisation – I didn’t want to die, I just didn’t want to hurt anymore. That was pivotal for me
