Foundation Member – Samaritans
Every day, Samaritans volunteers respond to around 10,000 calls for help to our 24-hour listening service. We’re here for anyone suicidal or struggling to cope and we listen without judgement, giving them the space to find a way through.
Whatever you’re going through, Samaritans is the only charity available to call or message for free, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our unique and life-saving support is delivered by over 20,000 extraordinary volunteers in 204 local branches right across the UK and Republic of Ireland.
We encourage moments of connection between people that can save lives.
That human connection runs through all that we do. Every year, thousands of wonderful people run to raise money to ensure Samaritans continues to be here for anyone who needs help. Every £5 raised funds a call for help.
We support teams of runners in many of the UK’s best loved marathons, half marathons, 5K and 10K events, as well as in our own flagship virtual event, Samarathon.
It’s well known that running is good for your wellbeing. At Samaritans we celebrate that. Everyone is welcomed to Team Samaritans, whether you’re a beginner or a running regular, whether you’re running for your own mental health, because Samaritans has been there for you or a loved one, or you’re taking on a challenge in memory of a life sadly lost to suicide.
