Samaritans of Bath & District on the Lower Bristol Road, Bath

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.

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 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. The next Information Evenings will take place on Thursday 23rd January 2020 and Tuesday 18th February 2020. If you decide to apply, you will be invited to attend a Selection Day which usually takes place on a Sunday from 10:45am until 3:00pm. Selection Day dates and times will be disclosed at the two Information Evenings. If you have any queries, please contact Mabel at [email protected] or leave an answerphone message on: 01225 423540.
