  • Samaritans' Small Talk Saves Lives campaign

    Created: 15/02/2023

    The Samaritans' Small Talk Saves Lives campaign launches on 21 February in partnership with Network Rail, British Transport Police and the wider rail industry. The campaign aims to empower the public to trust their instincts and start a conversation if they think someone needs help at railway stations and other public settings. A simple question or observation can be all it takes to interrupt someone’s suicidal thoughts and start them on the journey to recovery. The campaign gives people the confidence to start a conversation, which could save a life.

    An online toolkit is available here. The toolkit contains:

    • Details about the campaign
    • Digital assets including a new campaign film (available from 21 February)
    • Suggested social media posts.
    • Copy to use for in internal comms.
    • Suggested newsletter copy.

    An event is running in Fife to launch the campaign:

    • Dunfermline – community event – Kelty Community Centre - 21 February 2023, 10:30-13:00 in café area.

    If you would like to attend, please contact Arlene Dickson for more information: [email protected]
