Welcome to the Eastbourne and District Samaritans Branch Website

The Haven Eqstbourne

Thank you for taking an interest in Eastbourne and District Samaritans and the work we do.

Situated in Bolton Road, our branch is affiliated to the Samaritans national charity which is a unique organisation dedicated to reducing the feelings of isolation and disconnection that can lead to suicide. Samaritans provide a 24 hour service, every day of the year, to make sure there is always someone there for anyone who needs someone to talk to. As one of more than 200 branches and locations across the UK and Ireland, we contribute to supporting people all over the country and locally here in Eastbourne. By providing people with a confidential, non-­judgemental space to talk, we know that we are able to reduce painful feelings and provide hope and support where this is needed.

Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy and Samaritans vision is that fewer people die by suicide.

We also engage in, reach out to people in our local community to raise awareness of what we can offer and to raise funds which pay the costs of our work.
