Every 6 seconds, someone contacts Samaritans.
Whether we can be there for every person though, depends on you.
Our team of trained volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
"If I hadn’t called Samaritans, I honestly don’t know where I’d be today. I have my life to thank them for."
Every single day, around 16 people decide to end their own life across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales
£10 donation could cover the cost of two calls for help from someone struggling to cope.
For every £1 donated to Samaritans and its branches in the UK and Ireland, 85p goes on our services and just 15p is invested in raising the next £1.
When I was purchasing some items from the Samaritans online shop... I realised they had a 'Donation' item - quickly added one to my basket, as I thought it was such a great way to help support the Samaritans at such a difficult time!
