We are taking part in The Big Listen on Tuesday 24th July - 24/7. Samaritans from 103 branches all over the country will be talking to commuters at stations at other local events, and volunteers from our Central London branch will be at Kings Cross Station in London from 7am-7pm.
The Big Listen aims to encourage and promote good listening skills. We can understand more about people and their lives by listening closely to them but sometimes it's difficult to know where to start.
Our volunteers will be handing out goodies including SHUSH cards with good listening tips:
Show you care
Use open questions
Say it back
As Samaritans we're all familiar with this approach and The Big Listen is a chance to share our skills with more people. If you come across one of us at your local station, do come and talk to us.
