How your money can help us
a month could help us answer a call for help that could save a life, every month this year
a month could help train and support a Samaritans volunteer to be there throughout the year for someone struggling to cope
a month could go towards keeping Samaritans' phone line open throughout the year, ensuring there is always someone to listen when a person who’s struggling finds the courage to call
Where your money goes
Why we need your support
Every 10 seconds, Samaritans responds to a call 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.
