About Chiltern Samaritans

Chiltern Samaritans has provided emotional support to people in our local area and beyond since 1968. We give people time and space to express their feelings in a safe and confidential environment. We listen, we don't judge and we never tell people what they should do.

 

We aim to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year. We mainlt support the following areas.

 

  • Amersham
  • Chesham
  • High Wycombe
  • The Chalfonts
  • Berkhamsted
  • Great Missenden
  • Beaconsfield
  • Aylesbury

 

We are within a five minute walk of both Amersham Station (London Underground Metropolitan Line and Chiltern Railways) and the town's High Street. Each year, our 130 volunteers provide support to more than 26,000 people in distress or despair; by phone, email, text and face-to-face. Anyone can drop into the branch to talk to one of our volunteers in a private room. You don't need an appointment and can speak to someone from 7am to 9.30pm each day. Free parking is available on site.

 

Working in our Community

We reach out to people and organisations within our community to raise awareness of our service and support as many people in need as possible. Our outreach team works with HMP Aylesbury, community organisations and High Wycombe JobCentrePlus.

Volunteering for Chiltern Samaritans

The branch is run solely by volunteers and there are many different ways for people to get involved. Most volunteers support callers by phone, email and text. However, our branch could not operate without the help of our support volunteers who provide administrative and operational expertise. We welcome those who are intetested in learning about volunteering with Chiltern samaritans, in whatever capacity.

 

Fundraising

Our branch is totally dependent on public donations, the fund-raising efforts of our volunteers and corporate sponsorship. We would be very grateful for your support. You can do so by attending an event, donating to our branch, or suggesting ideas as to how we can raise funds.

More information about our fundraising activities can be found here.
