Where your money goes
Why we need your support
Every day, Samaritans volunteers respond to around 10,000 calls for help.
In 2018, there were 6,944 suicides in the UK and Republic of Ireland
Every 90 minutes, someone in the UK or Ireland takes their own life
In the UK, males are three times more likely to die by suicide than females.
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.
