How we can help
Monday-Friday see opening hours. Weekends by appointment only.
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.
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. Due to very high demand, the Selection Day in September is now full; there will, therefore, be no Information Evening on 11th September as previously adverstised. The next Information Evening dates are Thursday 17th October and Tuesday 19th November 2019. The next available Selection Day for those who have attended an Information Evening and want to apply to be a Samaritan will be Sunday 12th January 2020 from 10.45am until 3.00pm. 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.
Make a donation: You may be thinking of making a donation. We rely on the generosity of our donors to keep our phone lines open. If you would like to make a donation to Samaritans of Bath & District, please follow the link below.
