Thousands of people contact us every year by phone, face to face, or by email.
Many of them are from our local area - Walsall, Bloxwich, Sandwell, Darlaston, Lichfield, Great Barr, Cannock....but phone calls can be from anywhere in the UK, and emails can be from anywhere in the world! Circumstances and cultures vary, but the emotions people feel remain pretty constant. Samaritans realised early on the value of ordinary people listening to others in confidence at times of emotional distress - that's still what we do - Samaritans is still about confidential support at times of crisis and despair, but has grown from its origins as a "999 for the suicidal" to become an organization which aims to give everyone a safe place to talk and find their own way forward in difficult times.
For nearly 45 years, Samaritans has been there for people in Walsall and the surrounding towns. The branch is staffed entirely by trained, unpaid volunteers, and has to raise its own funds to cover running costs. It was founded in November 1969 - the 100th branch in the country to open.
Our centre, a single storey building with its own car park, is located in Bott Lane - not far from the town centre; for further details see How to find us. Our branch telephone number is 01922 624000.
