Charity Overview

Samaritans is the only charity offering emotional support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for anyone in the UK and Ireland who needs someone. Life is full of ups and downs and we will all go through tough times at one point or another and Samaritans have been supporting people through these times since 1954. Samaritans volunteers have had tens of millions of life-changing conversations in that time. They give people the time they need and having a safe place to turn to can be the only thing that gets someone through a difficult time in their life.
