The Prince of Wales visits the Samaritans head office in 2013

The Prince of Wales has shared a message of thanks to Samaritans volunteers for the time they dedicate to helping others.

In the Samaritans’ mission of preventing suicide, your incredible network of over 20,000 volunteers is a shining example of all that is best about our voluntary sector - providing a listening service day and night, 365 days a year.

In response to the coronavirus, Samaritans have also launched a new confidential support line for NHS and social care workers, making sure they have someone to talk to during this difficult time.
