Looking for help?
Our members and volunteers around the world provide confidential support to people in emotional crisis or distress, or those close to them.
We believe in giving a person the opportunity to explore feelings which can cause distress, the importance of being listened to, in confidence, anonymously, and without prejudice.
We value that a person has the fundamental decision about their own life.
On 19th November Befrienders Worldwide held its first ever webinar to showcase
the new Samaritans UK Core development E-Learning training programme. The
webinar was received in 32 countries and viewed by 169 BW centres including
some invited guests.
The Befrienders Worldwide Board of trustees would like to thank all our wonderful volunteers around the world for their dedication and compassion in helping other who for whatever reason find themselves in some form of crisis and need a listening befriender at the other end of a phone, Email, or web chat service.
We are very pleased to report a successful launch of the new Help BW App which has received over 3000 visits to the site connecting to 71 member branches in the first 4 weeks of operation.
