Samaritans is a non-religious volunteer organisation that provides a 24hr telephone listening support service for callers who may be experiencing feelings of distress or despair, including those which lead to suicide. Our vision is for a society where fewer people take their lives by suicide.

We try to help people find their own solutions to their problems. Samaritans are not counsellors or advice-givers.
