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.
Suicidal feelings were expressed during almost 1 in 4 calls for help where emotional support was provided.
Every 90 minutes in the UK, someone dies by suicide. But talking saves lives.
During 2022, Samaritans volunteers responded to almost 3 million calls for help by telephone and more than 200,000 by email.
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.
