About Mid Cheshire (Northwich) Samaritans
Our branch has been providing support to people in our local area since 1965.
We offer emotional support in person, by telephone, by email and by text and on average each year we help over 22,000 people going through a tough time. Our branch covers the following areas:
- Hale Barns
Our Work in Mid Cheshire
A really important part of Samaritans work is to reach out to people in the community and work with other organisations to raise awareness of what we do and offer support to as many people as we can. Did you know every 90 minutes someone dies by suicide and every 6 seconds someone call us!
We have an outreach team who work with, for example, local schools. We love giving talks to anyone who invites us, so we can spread the word.
Volunteering in our Branch
Everyone in the Branch is a volunteer, from Carrie our Director to our part time fundraisers. We have around 58 volunteers. Although Samaritans is best known for its listening volunteers who answer the telephones, there are so many other ways in which you can help us. We have roles in administration, fundraising, IT support and building maintenance for example. If you want to find out more why not give us a call on 07864 540302 or alternatively email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next Information/Selection evening will take place on Wednesday 29 August 2018 at 6.50pm.
Raising Funds for our branch can be fun!
There are so many ways you can raise money for us! Our branch is autonomous and responsible for its own fundraising and management of its volunteers. The central charity just helps us out with policy.
Each year our branch receives over 22,000 calls for support. We need your support to help us to make sure we can be there for anyone who needs us.
There are many ways in which you can help us; no contribution is too small to make a big difference.
