About Huddersfield Samaritans
Huddersfield Samaritans has been helping people for over 45 years. We received our first call in September 1968 at our branch in Trinity Street. Today you will find us in the centre of Huddersfield, where we provide confidential emotional support to people from all over the area.
The branch is an important part of the community and we often attend events, give talks and work with local organisations to increase awareness of Samaritans’ services and promote emotional wellbeing. Each year, we attend Huddersfield University's Freshers Fair and Volunteer Recruitment day.
For more information about the service we offer, visit our page on how we can help you.
