Calls to Samaritans about financial issues double

Annual survey shows people in the North West worried most about money. Calls to Samaritans' helpline about financial worries have doubled in the three years since the onset of the financial crisis. One in five people contacting the charity this year talked about job concerns, housing problems, debt and other financial pressures, doubling from one in ten calls in 2008.


If you're struggling to cope with the challenges you're facing in these difficult times, we'd encourage you to get in touch with Samaritans. Our service runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is available throughout the Christmas and New Year period. We answer a call every six seconds, even on Christmas Day. We know that the holidays can sometimes bring on strong feelings for many individuals. That's why we stay open when others close. You can contact Samaritans on (08457) 90 90 90 or e-mail us at:
