"Talk to us any time you like, in your own way, and off the record – about whatever’s getting to you. You don’t have to be suicidal."

 

Samaritans is a charity whose core service is to provide confidential emotional support by telephone, email, face-to-face, text message and letter.

Volunteers man our helplines round the clock, every single day of year, as well as running our range of local outreach programmes.

We work with schools, colleges and universities, the media, workplaces, health & welfare services, homeless shelters, prisons and other charities.
We also promote awareness of our service at local community events and public festivals.
