Why support Samaritans?

Every 60 seconds, someone with suicidal feelings contacts us.

Whether we can be there for every person, though, depends on you. 

We receive almost no government funding, so it’s your donations that keep us going.

When I had no-one to turn to, Samaritans answered my call for help


If I hadn’t called Samaritans, I honestly don’t know where I’d be today. I have my life to thank them for.


I like being there for people who are in distress, for people who are lonely, and for people who don’t have anyone else in their lives they can bounce ideas off.

Gillian, Samaritans volunteer

If I had known about Samaritans when I was 13, I feel I could have got the help and support I needed.


I know that if it all gets too much, I can talk to Samaritans
