Who Are The Befrienders?

We are FRIENDS to those who are suicidal, depressed or in despair.

We are there when things are too much. When no one cares and no one will listen.

You can tell any Befriender how you feel and why everything is so bad.

You can share your innermost feelings without fear or criticism or judgement, safe in the knowledge that it will be kept confidential.

In fact, you needn’t even tell us your name. You can just talk to us on the phone, email us, write to us, or meet a Befriender face to face.

The Befrienders do not offer financial assistance but we provide confidential befriending 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without charge.

We are a multi-racial, non religious organization and we are available to everyone, regardless of creed, race, religion, age or sex.
