Welcome to Lincoln Samaritans
Unfortunately we are still not taking face to face calls in branch due to the continuing Covid-19 situation. If you need support please contact Samaritans on 116123- this is a free number
Listening Roles - We would welcome applications from anyone who is interested in becoming a Samaritans Listener. A Samaritans listener is there to give emotional support and a listening ear to our callers. If you can give a small amount of time each week I know our callers would be grateful. We will be holding information sessions where you can come along and find out a bit more about Lincoln Samaritans, meet some of our brilliant volunteers and get an idea of what the role entails.- Watch out for dates on the website!
We would welcome applications from anyone interested in volunteering at our branch in a support role. These are essential role! The branch cannot run without support volunteers.
If you would like to help us we are really in need of someone who can take on the fundraising role for us. This would be a volunteer role- helping to look and apply for funding to help support the branch.This is a vital role as all Samaritans branches are self-funding and therefore we need at lease £17000 annually. If you are interested please email [email protected]
Congratulations to our new Samaritans who have just finished their training and are embarking on their Samaritans career! THANKYOU!
We have about 50 volunteers. They listen to our callers, mostly on the phone but also by answering e-mails. We also welcome people to come to the branch and talk to us face to face, when we are open. Lincoln Samaritans also supports a listening service at Her Majesty's Prison Lincoln and is developing a listening service at HMP Morton Hall in collaboration with Grantham Samaritans.
We are all volunteers and the branch has to raise all of our operating costs which is in the regions of £17,000 per year therefore fundraising is essential! We are keen to encourage people from our local community to get involved with raising funds for our branch. If you are able to support the branch with a donation either personally or from a company, charitable fund or indeed a small bequest in a will, we, and more importantly our callers would be most grateful.
If you have a little time to spare, why not apply to be a volunteer. There are lots of different roles from administration to listening to callers and we would love to welcome you to our team. Just click on the link below.
