Samaritans provides confidential non-judgemental emotional support, 24 hours a day for people who are experiencing feelings of distress or despair, including those which could lead to suicide.

Samaritans have had a Branch in Salisbury for over 40 years. The doors are open 12 hours a day to visitors, and we aim to have two telephones manned for 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

We have approximately 100 volunteers, taking over 42,000 caller contacts in a year, of which nearly 17,000 are of significant length - an average of appromiately 450 and 180 per volunteer per year respectively, well above the national average. This reflects the dedication, and hard work, of our volunteers.

In addition, our speakers give presentation talks to schools, colleges, clubs and other organisations. Samaritans can be contacted by telephone, by letter, by email and by visiting the branch in Milford Street - over 95% of contacts are by telephone but email contact is growing.
