Guernsey Samaritans have been listening to those in need since 1963

You will find us in Forest Lane (the little lane that runs up the side of Moores Central Hotel) from where we offer emotional support in person, by telephone, email, and in writing. We provide support for around 7,000 people every year.

Our patron is the wife of the Lieutenant Governor, Lady Corder and she actively supports Samaritans functions in Guernsey.

An important part of our Samaritans work is to reach out to people in the community and we work with other organisations to provide support for as many people as we can. Importantly we work with our local prison to support those in need, with the assistance of trained prisoner "Listeners" who provide 24 hour support within the prison.

Everyone in our branch is a volunteer, from the Director, who manages the activities of the branch, through the 40 or so listening volunteers. We have a complete mix of ages from their early twenties to octogenarians.

We also have a fantastic group of supporters, the Friends of the Samaritans, who assist our fundraising.

We are always looking for new recruits to train as listening volunteers, or to support those who do in other roles like admin, fundraising, publicity or IT. Please email us at [email protected] or phone 01481 711030 to discuss how you can play your part.
