What's different about Samaritans?

Round the clock

We’re there for people when they need us, which could be any time of day or night.

People talk to us for as long as they like, as many times as they like.

We don't rush, interrupt or push anyone out of the door. We let people lead the conversation at their own pace.

There's no waiting lists, and no assessments.


We don’t pass on what people tell us. Not even the name of someone that calls us.

For some, we’re the only place they can turn to without fear of repercussions.

For others that might worry about burdening friends or family, we offer a safe place to turn.

Serving people with diabetes since 1967

Since 1967, Diabetes Ireland has been the national charity dedicated to helping people with diabetes. We achieve this by providing support, education and motivation to everyone affected by diabetes. Diabetes Ireland also raises public awareness of diabetes and its symptoms and funds research into finding a cure for diabetes.
Living with diabetes is not easy! However, with the right help, advice and support, there is no reason why Irish people with diabetes cannot live life to the full. This is our goal and each year through our patient education and information services we provide that support to thousands of Irish people with diabetes and their families when needed most.

In June we bring a group of 110 people to Hosanna House in Lourdes for what is a unique experience both Carer and Guest.

We have two super facilities in Kilcuan, Co. Galway and Cois Cuain, Co. Wexford each offering different opportunities. Both facilities provide Friendship weeks during the Summer....

Jonah Special School caters for students with autism and complex needs. The school was originally set up in 2002 by a group of parents who felt their children deserved intensive individualized instruction to enable each student to reach their full potential. The school was funded as a ‘pilot’ project for a number of years and recently received partial recognition from the department of education. The eleven students in Jonah Special School currently have access to a ratio of two teachers and seven SNA’s to eleven students. 



What is Camphill?

Camphill Communities of Ireland is part of an international charitable trust working with people with intellectual disabilities and other kinds of special needs.

In Camphill our residents share their home, spiritual and working lives with those who are motivated to meet others as individuals needing support and recognition for what they are, and not as carer and cared for in the conventional sense. Most of the people providing support to those with disabilities are volunteers, coming locally or from abroad.

Camphill is a way of life, where each person according to ability contributes what they can towards the well-being of the other. 

Pioneered by war refugees in Scotland almost 70 years ago, Camphill today numbers over 100 communities in 20 countries. In the Republic of Ireland, 18 communities of varying sizes and settings are home to around 500 people, plus a number of day attendees.
