Friends in Need Christmas Appeal


This Christmas please donate to the Friends in Need appeal.

Friends in Need now has over 22,000 people, who have joined us to help end the loneliness and isolation that comes with depression.

As other services shut down for Christmas, Friends in Need stays open day and night and it’s often our busiest time. We want everyone to have someone to talk to who really understands, who just gets it.

We expect our numbers to continue to grow over this Christmas period and in the months ahead and for this we need to fund additional resources to run the Friends in Need community. With your help we can make sure we are able to welcome and connect people who come to us, in what can be the most isolating and loneliest time of the year.

This is where we need your help.

It costs approximately £12 per hour to run Friends in Need, a contribution of this amount or whatever you can afford can give someone the lifeline they need.

Donate via the JustGiving website or you can text DEPA12 and the amount to 70070, for example, DEPA12 £10
