Central London Samaritans is the only support service in London open round the clock, every day of the year. Every year they receive over 100,000 calls for help. People call them to be heard, to work through their problems and find positive outcomes that work for them. Volunteers also reach out and work with schools, colleges and universities, workplaces, health and welfare services, homeless people, prisons and other charities.
