The Samaritans is a member of Befrienders International, the befriending movement worldwide. The organisation was founded in 1974 by Chad Varah twenty one years after he started The Samaritans in the United Kingdom. Befrienders International has a unique role to develop volunteer-resourced suicide prevention services worldwide. The estimated one million suicides which occur each year illustrate the need for such services, as do the four million contacts made to Befrienders International centres by people in emotional crisis and at risk of suicide.
Full details of Befrienders International, its’ Branches and services, are available on their website, www.befrienders.org.
