Samaritans reaction to the Etherington review of charity fundraising

Samaritans welcomes the findings of the Etherington review of charity fundraising, published today.  We are committed to delivering the highest standards in our fundraising, and we want our donors and the public to continue to have confidence in the way we operate.

It is important that there are clear regulations and that the standards which are set are the highest they can be.  This is crucial to earn the trust of the public and donors who enable Samaritans to continue to be there every day of the year, round the clock, for the people who need us.

  • Samaritans is available round the clock, every single day of the year, providing a safe place for anyone who is struggling to cope. Please call 116 123, email, or visit to find details of the nearest branch.
