What does Samaritans do?
Samaritans volunteers listen in confidence to anyone in any type of emotional distress, without judging or telling people what to do.
Samaritans doesn’t offer advice, but by encouraging people who contact us to talk about their feelings we are able to help them explore all the options they have. Samaritans believes that given the time and space to work problems or difficulties through in confidence, people can find an inner strength and perspective which lets them find their own way forward.
