How we can help
The aim of Samaritans’ work with young people is to: - raise awareness of the existence of Samaritans and what we do - improve understanding of emotional health and its impact on young people's wellbeing - teach young people about the importance of emotional support and where it can be found - explain the value of listening - encourage young people to consider the possibility of calling Samaritans if they are experiencing feelings of distress etc.
Our listeners support callers on the phone and by email in times of emotional distress and along with other branches, we provide this support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you would like to volunteer as a listening volunteer in Leeds, please contact us on [email protected] or 0113 2445370 to find out more about the role and our shift patterns.
We've been training prisoners in our local prison to provide emotional support to other prisoners by becoming 'Listeners' for nearly 30 years.
We are open from 9am-9pm every day and you don't need an appointment to come and see us. Occasionally we are all on the phone so bear with us if it takes us a while to answer the doorbell.
Samaritans of Leeds have been offering emotional support to people in the Leeds community for over 50 years.
We have a team of around 120 dedicated volunteers at Leeds branch, providing confidential non-judgemental support to people experiencing feelings of distress or despair.
Our volunteers keep our branch phones answered, emails replied to and visitors seen, as well as fundraising to keep the branch running and assist in our shop to bring in vital funds. You can follow us on Twitter to find out more about our branch and what we are up to.
We are always actively recruiting for more enthusiastic volunteers to join us!
