How we can help

Face to face

Boston Branch does not offer Face- to face. The nearest Face to face branches are Kings Lynn, Lincoln and Peterborough.

Listening service

Our services are not just for people who are suicidal, As a Samaritans branch we provide emotional support to anyone in need through the mediums of telephone, email and text.

Schools outreach

In addition to schools, we also outreach to local businesses, community groups and other organisations. To learn more please do get in touch.

  • We have a lift and are very, but not totally, accessible.

For nearly 50 years the Boston Branch of Samaritans has been here for anyone who’s going through a difficult time.

Today, we have around 30 volunteers providing listening services and helping us raise funds to be able to be there for those who have lots on their mind.

Samaritans are here for anyone struggling to cope – day or night, 365 days a year.

Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy, and we as a branch help to deliver the Samaritans’ vision, that fewer people die by suicide. We believe that suicide is preventable. We take action to prevent people reaching crisis point, helping people find ways to cope and learn the skills to be there for others. We campaign to make suicide prevention a priority. If you feel you need to speak to a Samaritan please check out the ways that you can.

Boston Branch has no paid staff and is run solely by volunteers who are described as 'Ordinary people doing extraordinary things'. If you feel that you, too, can do extraordinary things and would like to do something you’re proud of, please do visit our volunteering page.
