We've been proudly supporting the local community for more than 50 years and currently have over 180 volunteers in our branch at 19 St Stephen’s Square, Norwich.
Our branch is made up of mostly listening volunteers, who provide emotional support by phone, email, text and face to face. We also support people in prisons at HMP Norwich and HMP Bure.
In 2016 our branch:
- received over 45,000 calls for help
- responded to over 2,200 emails
- answered more than 4,700 texts messages
- and met with 599 face to face visitors at our branch
We also have branch support volunteers. They do vital work that contributes to running our branch, including fundraising, administration, raising awareness and working in our shops on Aylsham Road and 5 Westlegate, Norwich.
Here are our latest & upcoming Fundraising & Outreach events.
