Why we need your support
Every 6 seconds, someone contacts us. Our team of trained volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
The coronavirus is crisis is the biggest challenge Samaritans has ever faced. Our helpline is feeling the pressure. We’re likely to experience more people struggling to cope or in crisis.
At this time of writing, around 30% of our volunteers will be self-isolating because they are over 70 years old or have an underlying health condition.
In 2017, there were 6,213 suicides in the UK and Republic of Ireland. In the UK, men are three times more likely to take their own lives than women.
Thank you for everything you're doing to try to make sure we can still be there for people now and over the next few months.
Nicola, Samaritans volunteer
