How we can help

Schools outreach

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.

Listening service

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.

Prisons outreach

We've been training prisoners in our local prison to provide emotional support to other prisoners by becoming 'Listeners' for nearly 30 years.
