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 we have temporarily suspended our Face to Face service. Further updates will be posted here.
Samaritans out and about
You’ll also see 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, we are once again ready to accept new applications to join the Branch. Going forward, there will no longer be Information Evenings or Selection Days. Instead there will be an interview either by zoom or in the Branch (Covid-19 restrictions permitting).
We know many of you have been extremely patient which we really appreciate. If you are still interested, please contact Leo at [email protected] or leave an answerphone message on 01225 423540 for more information. To volunteer, just follow the link below.
