Samaritans Brighton, Hove and District, a charity registered in England (1170866). Samaritans Brighton, Hove and District is a recognised branch of Samaritans.

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

Within many prisons, Samaritans have trained Listeners to support other prisoners who are in emotional distress. The Listeners are prisoners trained by Samaritans - they volunteer for this very demanding and important role, and can be called on throughout the day and night. The Samaritans who make up the Brighton branch prison team visit the prison Listeners every Saturday and on two Wednesdays each month. We also support the staff in the prison and are involved in initiatives organised by the Safer Custody team at HMP Lewes.

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.

  • St Ann's Well Gardens Festival - rain did not stop play!!

    14th May 2018
    We are doing something every month in 2018 to mark our 50th anniversary. And this month, it was the St Ann's Well Gardens Festival on Saturday 12th May. Mainly aimed at recruiting new volunteers, we were also there to raise awareness about about what we do and make sure those who need us know how to get in touch. We also tried out our fabulous new marquee which, luckily, we found to be totally rainproof!
