About Samaritans

If you're looking for support, you may prefer to visit samaritans.org - whatever you’re facing, a Samaritan will face it with you.

Samaritans is a unique charity dedicated to suicide prevention. Today, our unique 24-hour listening service will answer almost 15,000 calls for help. We're there for anyone who’s struggling to cope and who needs someone to listen without judgement or pressure.

Samaritans is not only for the moment of crisis, we’re taking action to prevent the crisis. We give people ways to cope and the skills to be there for others; encouraging, promoting and celebrating moments of connection between people that can reduce feelings of loneliness, isolation and disconnection.

Beyond our branches, we offer listening and support to communities in times of need - in schools, hospitals, prisons and on the rail network, Samaritans are working with people who are going through a difficult time and training others to do the same.

Every 90 minutes someone in the UK or Ireland dies by suicide. That’s why, today and every day, Samaritans works tirelessly to reach more people and to push for changes in government policy that can save lives.

Whether it’s an ‘are you ok?’ at just the right moment, or the midnight support of a trained volunteer; whether it's better training in the workplace or campaigning for more investment in national and local suicide prevention – we're here.
