The work of the Samaritans supports those who feel suicidal and helps them find a way out of their despair. The work of the organisation is not funded by Government and all the members are volunteers covering phones every hour of the year.
Conversations are confidential and anonymous unless the caller decides to call for help of some sort when they can reveal their name.
There are over 200 branches and 23,000 volunteers whose stated values are:
* People making their own decisions wherever possible
* Human contact
We will be helping raise funds to support you in the coming months.
