Welcome to Brighton, Hove and District Branch Samaritans, located in the city of Brighton and Hove.
As well as the core Samaritan listening service that we provide from our centre in Hove, we support our local community in a number of other ways:
Samaritans support Lewes Prison
Samaritans gives talks in Brighton and Hove
We regularly recieve requests to give talks to a variety of groups and organisations who want to know about Samaritans and what we do. This includes going into local schools whare we run specially adapted sessions suitable for young people. This is a great way to encourage those who may need our support sometime in the future or who may one day decide they would like to become a Samaritans themselves. If you would like us to come and talk to your school, company or team, please contact us via General Enquiries.
Support for people bereaved by suicide
The Facing the Future service has been developed by Samaritans and Cruse Bereavement Care to help support people who have been bereaved by suicide and has been running in Brighton and Hove since October 2016.
Facing the Future support groups give people bereaved by suicide the opportunity to meet others who have lost someone to suicide and share their experiences and feelings. Each support group is run by two trained volunteer facilitators from Samaritans and Cruse Bereavement Care and the groups run once a week over six consecutive weeks, with each session lasting for 90 minutes. There are a minimum of five and a maximum of eight participants in each group and sessions are free of charge.
