Welcome to Bromley and Orpington Samaritans

Whatever you're going through, a Samaritan will face it with you.

We're here to answer your call, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Every six seconds, we respond to a call for help.

No judgement. No pressure. Call for FREE on 116123.

Through active listening and gentle, sensitive questioning we try our best to help you, in your own time, to find the answers that are right for you.

If you would prefer to speak with us in person at our branch, please make an appointment to visit by calling our dedicated appointment line 01689 873190. However, at the moment this service is suspended due to coronavirus Covid-19. See our branch news article relating to the 'Face to Face' service update below.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life and are made up of all ages, background, genders and ethnicities and are trained to support callers day and night.

Come and join us!

We are always looking for more volunteers to join our team, so whatever skills you have to offer, please do get in touch. We provide full training and support to help you become either a qualified Samaritan’s listener volunteer or a support volunteer.
