You can trust your legacy to Samaritans

From our beginnings, Samaritans has always been an extremely efficient organisation. For every £1 raised, 82p goes on delivering the service and 18p is invested to help raise the next £1.


Every six seconds, somebody contacts us. Ten times a minute, we can help someone turn their life around. That’s a privilege, and a huge responsibility.

£1,000 could keep 10 of our branches open round the clock

There are 201 branches across the UK and ROI – your support can help more of them stay open for longer.

£10,000 could train 100 volunteers

Right now we have 21,200 people who give up their time for anyone who needs to talk in branches, by phone or on email. You can help make sure we never miss a call.

£60,000 could provide a year’s support in the community

Our mobile festival and events branches help us raise awareness and reach out to young people, making sure they know we are there for them to talk to us, before it’s too late.

A gift in your Will – however big or small – will make a huge difference.

In 2017, Samaritans volunteers spent over one million hours responding to calls for help, which would not have been possible without the generosity of our supporters and the gifts they left in their Wills.
