Samaritans partners with rail industry to launch Do Good, Feel Good campaign

Suicide prevention charity, Samaritans, has teamed up with the rail industry to encourage more people to support the charity through the launch of Do Good, Feel Good.

At a time when the service has never been more needed, and time is increasingly limited, Do Good, Feel Good provides an opportunity for people to support the charity’s life-saving service in as little as 10 minutes.

From signing a petition, to planning a walk, in memory of a loved one, or taking part in a gaming livestream, there’s lots of ways for rail workers to support Samaritans with the time they have available.

Caroline Pearce from the charity said: “We know rail workers are passionate about supporting our cause and see first-hand the difference the charity makes, but lack the time to get involved as they juggle their work and personal commitments.

“Do Good, Feel Good was developed with this in mind, giving people the chance to personalise the support they can provide, based on how much time they can spare – whether that’s a few minutes or a few hours.”

The platform also has a wealth of resources to help rail workers support their own and other’s wellbeing including muscle relaxation, breathing exercises, and tips on being a better listener.

Samaritans is the only charity that is there for anyone struggling to cope 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Volunteers across the UK and Republic of Ireland spent over one million hours responding to calls for help last year and continue to be there around the clock for anyone who needs a listening ear.

Remember, if you’re going through a difficult time, Samaritans is here, day or night. Call free on 116 123 or email [email protected].
