An update from Darlington Samaritans

Darlington branch continued through the pandemic to offer support by telephone and email, as part of a network to offer 24/7 cover. We are all unpaid volunteers, whether on the phones or as support workers. As our usual fundraising has been curtailed, we rely on kind donations and grants to keep us going. Thanks to one of our funders, Pears Foundation and DCMS we were able to move our ops room downstairs, for a larger room for social distancing, and easier access for our volunteers. We have now arranged for the old ops room to become a training room, with help from an LNER grant.

The face to face facility is currently closed, due to covid. We'll update this page as soon as we are able to safely provide this service again with our new drop-in opening times. Until then you can always call our freephone number: 116 123 to talk to someone anytime; day or night. Alternatively, you can send us an email: [email protected] - we are here for you, talk to us.
