How we can help
We've been training prisoners in our local prison to provide emotional support to other prisoners by becoming 'Listeners' for nearly 30 years.
We have suspended our face to face service due to Covid-19 and will update this page when it is available again
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.
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.
Corporate talks - We offer a learn to listen talk which offers listening tips that we use as part of our listening service. If you are interested, please get in touch in the general enquiries button on our page.
Samaritans of Leeds have been offering emotional support to people in the Leeds community for over 50 years.
Samaritans of Leeds continue to help offer emotional support to people everywhere!
We have a team of over 150 dedicated volunteers at the Leeds branch, all providing confidential, non-judgemental, emotional support.
Our volunteers answer your calls, reply to your emails and fundraise to keep the branch running. We have a shop in Headingley, – be sure to check it out once we are back up and running again. We will let you know on our website and Twitter when we re-open.
Follow us on Twitter to find out more about our branch and what we are up to. We keep up to date all activity of the branch on our Twitter feed. Follow us @SamaritansLeeds to be kept up to date on what we are up to.
