The Samaritans will be at Speakers’ Corner on Saturday 7 July at 12noon.

Most people have probably heard of the Samaritans, but how much do you actually know about what we do?

Many people don’t realise that you don’t have to be suicidal to contact us. That’s because we offer emotional support to anyone in distress or despair – about anything.

Lots of people don’t k,now how to contact us. It’s easy, you can contact us by phone or email or visit and we’re developing an SMS text service.

It’s really safe to contact us – we won’t pass anything on to anyone else, without your permission.

You can contact us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 08457 90 90 90, even on Christmas Day! You’ll speak to a real person will answer, not just an answerphone!

How can you help us?
– you can make sure family and friends know about us too
– you can become a volunteer yourself
– or supporting us in other ways

If you are interested in any of this, please come along, or stop as you pass by at Speakers’ Corner in Lichfield on Saturday 7 July at 12 noon.
