“It took me a good five minutes to feel like I could speak, and I remember crying for a good while. It felt good to tell someone unreservedly how I felt and have someone listen."
Stephanie, 32 - Samaritans caller
“I like listening to people and supporting them through hard times. Samaritans offer a non-judgemental helpline, so people can share really honestly. I am proud that our organisation is there 24/7 – especially through the night. It’s good to know that one of us volunteers are on the end of the phone when people need us the most.”
Leonie, Huddersfield - Samaritans Volunteer

A donation of just £5 can help answer a call for help. A call that could save a life.
