Samaritans Charity Nationwide Samaritans provide a confidential helpline for anyone in New Zealand who may be feeling lonely, depressed or suicidal.

Last year 606 New Zealanders died by suicide. We know our service can help before it's too late. That's why Samaritans are there to listen to any problem - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Samaritans receive no government funding. It's your donations that keep our phone lines open. The donations we receive help pay the phone charges and other costs involved in running our 24/7 call centre and towards increasing our most valuable resource: trained volunteer listeners.

Thank you for your support. It means so much to Samaritans and most importantly to our callers and their families.

Samaritans provides a confidential helpline for those who may be feeling lonely, depressed or suicidal.

Last year 606 New Zealanders died by suicide. We know our service can help before it's too late.

That's why Samaritans are there to listen to any problem - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The Wellington Samaritans centre opened in 1965 and celebrated fifty years of continuous service in 2015. Over the last year Samaritans trained 55 new volunteers and answered over 30,000 calls from people who felt they had no one else to talk to.

Samaritans receives no government funding. It's your donations that keep our phone lines open.

The income we receive from donations goes towards paying the phone and utilities charges required to run our 24/7 call centre and towards increasing our most valuable resource: trained volunteer listeners.

Thank you for your support. It means so much to Samaritans volunteers and most importantly to our callers and their families.
