What our members say

"Samwell provides a platform for artists' wellbeing that's been sorely needed for years; whether you're an actor, comedian or any other kind of creative, it's nice to know there's a group there with you in your corner."
Actor - Colchester
"Samwell has been an ongoing reliable and trustworthy source of support. I am so lucky to have found Samwell and I wish I had earlier!"
Performer - London
"As an Actor I have benefited from the informative articles that hit the mark by exploring the grey areas in the industry. It is invaluable to have a supportive platform where you feel 100% safe. I trust that I can share and explore my own mental health that goes beyond being a performer but a human being trying to navigate life."
Actor - Hampshire
