Greetings from Norwich Samaritans!
Here at Norwich Samaritans we've been supporting Norwich and the wider community through our listening service for over 50 years.
Staffed by 160 volunteers, we provide emotional support to those in distress by offering a free, safe space for callers to talk to us - any time they like, in their own way, about whatever is getting to them.
We also support people in prisons at HMP Norwich and HMP Bure. And our outreach teams give regular talks in schools and deliver training at many local organisations, including: student support groups at universities, nurses-in-training, and the coastguard.
In 2018 our branch:
- received over 29,000 calls for help
- responded to over 2,000 emails
- answered more than 6,000 text messages
- met with 416 face to face visitors

Our next Information Day will be at our branch at 2pm on Saturday 16th February 2019.
