About Samaritans of Stockport & District
There are about 25-30 suicides each year in the Stockport area. Samaritans mission is to reduce the number of people who die by suicide. Our branch is one of 200 branches across the country who offer emotional support by telephone. We support the whole of Stockport, as well as neighbouring areas.
You can get in touch with the Samaritans about anything that’s troubling you, no matter how large or small the issue feels. We're here to listen, no judgement, no pressure, and help you talk through what's on your mind. We'll never tell you what to do.
We're here 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Anyone can contact Samaritans for free anytime from any phone, even a mobile without credit.

Volunteering at Samaritans of Stockport
Everyone in our branch is a volunteer, and we are always looking for support locally. We have over 100 volunteers from a variety of backgrounds. Being a volunteer can help change lives, and we are always looking for people to help provide this vital listening service.
Not everyone wants to be a listening volunteer however, and there are so many other ways to support Stockport Samaritans, such as administration, fundraising, or publicity. There's something for everyone.
