How we can help
We offer emotional support through listening to callers who are in distress or facing a hard time. We offer a listening ear through phone calls, e-mails, and SMS. All callers will receive the same care and support, no matter how they choose to talk to us.
We offer a face to face service for callers who would like to visit the branch to talk to one of our trained volunteers in person. If you'd like to come in to talk to us, you can find our opening hours above.
Volunteers from Hastings and Rother Samaritans visit local schools, such as Claverham Community College and William Parker, to give talks about the Samaritans service, as well as about the importance of talking about our feelings. Our volunteers also run peer mentoring workshops in schools, and our school outreach activities will continue to expand in the future.
Welcome to the Hastings and Rother branch of Samaritans, located in Hastings town centre.
We offer emotional support through our listening scheme, but calling us isn't the only way to talk to us. We also open our doors every day of the week to those who would like to come into the branch and talk to a trained volunteer face to face. If you find yourself needing someone to talk to, feel free to pop in, and we will be there to support you.
As well as the Samaritans listening service, Hastings Samaritans also supports our local community in other ways. These include training and supporting listening volunteers at Maidstone Prison, giving talks in the Hastings and Rother area, and working with the Woodlands Centre for Acute Care in St. Leonards.
