The British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) continues a special relationship with Samaritans

We are delighted to be continuing a special relationship with Samaritans and we will do our utmost to provide students and young adults visiting our website with online, phone and text support mechanisms and will endeavour to signpost students and young adults to support available to them, day or night.


As a collaborative charity, BRIT are inviting every university and college team taking part in the BRIT Challenge to choose a second charity to raise funds for, alongside BRIT, to support local, regional and national charities.


We hope that university and college teams taking on the BRIT Challenge will choose Samaritans as their second charity to raise funds for, alongside BRIT.

We are honoured to carry the Samaritans' logo, website link and sincerely grateful to Julie Bentley, Chief Executive of Samaritans, for all her support and enthusiasm to forge a special relationship with BRIT.


“Every day, Samaritans volunteers respond to around 10,000 calls for help. We’re here, day or night, for anyone who’s struggling to cope and who needs someone to listen without judgement.


We are delighted that The British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) continues to highlight our services through their work with universities, colleges, student unions and the Charity, Education and Sport Sectors. Improving the mental health and fitness of young adults in the UK has never been more important.


I hope that university and college teams taking part in the BRIT Challenge will choose Samaritans as their second charity to raise funds for, alongside BRIT. Donations will enable us to continue to deliver support to those who need us”.
