Samaritans is a registered charity aimed at providing emotional support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. When someone calls Samaritans, the caller’s number is not displayed to the volunteer.
They may ask your name, because it’s a natural question to ask in a conversation but callers don’t have to tell us if you prefer not to. “We offer a safe place for you to talk any time you like, in your own way – about whatever’s getting to you. We won’t judge you or tell you what to do, we’ll listen to you.”
