How we can help
Unfortunately due to the current situation with the Coronavirus, we have temporarily suspended our Face to Face service. We will resume as soon as we are able. Meanwhile, if you need to talk to one of our volunteers please ring 116 123 - it's free and availalbe 24/7.
If you're struggling to cope, and need someone to talk to in confidence, give us a call. People can contact Samaritans throughout the day and night.
Someone is always there, around the clock, to listen to whatever's troubling you, even if life seems too difficult to go on. You will speak to someone who is just an ordinary person but who cares about what you’re going through. We don’t judge and we won’t tell - but we will listen. Call us on 116 123 from any phone, for free. Whatever’s on your mind - do contact us.
Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have temporarily suspended our Face to Face service and any new recruitment including Information Evenings and Selection Days. We will resume these as soon as we are able. Further updates will be posted here.
Samaritans out and about: You’ll also see us each Monday evening in the Emergency Department at Royal United Hospital Bath talking to patients and their families. Or perhaps when we visit local schools, railway stations, businesses or maybe when we are helping at Leyhill Open Prison.
Get involved, and help us help others: If you are interested in helping Samaritans with our work and want to know more, come along to one of our informal Information Evenings at the branch and find out about volunteering with us. There are lots of ways to help and we always welcome new Samaritans. The meetings start at 7.30pm (arrive 7.15pm for coffee and biscuits) and go on until 9.00pm. All are welcome and there's no need to book in advance. At these evenings we will talk in more detail about what being a Samaritan entails. It will help you decide if you wish to take things futher.
Should you decide to apply, you will be required to complete a Samaritan Volunteer application form and send it to: FAO Mabel, Bath & District Samaritans, 25 Windsor Castle, Upper Bristol Road, Bath, BA1 3DN. You will then be invited to attend one of our Selection Days.
If you have any queries, please contact Mabel at [email protected] or leave an answerphone message on: 01225 423540. To volunteer, just follow the link below.
Find out what we do: Perhaps your group or organisation would like us to visit and tell you about Samaritans and what we do - please email [email protected] or leave an answerphone message on 01225 423540 and one of our volunteers will get back to you.
