Samaritans is a known and respected charity. For many years we have offered support to those in distress and despair, some of whom are suicidal. We support callers by phone, text, email and face to face within our branch. We offer support within the community at Railway stations, hospitals, schools, homeless centre and many other places.
We offer a safe, confidential place where callers are able to talk about their feelings, worries and emotional turmoils without judgement. We don’t offer advice; we don’t try and fix everyone. We listen and offer emotional support when people need it the most.
Our Mission statement is that fewer people die by suicide.
As above, we are there, we listen we make sure that people in need know that we are there by national and local advertising and awareness campaigns. We reach out into the community to those who may need us.
