How we can help
As part of our Listener Scheme, we support and train the staff and residents of Thorn Cross Prison, equipping them with the skills needed to be providers of trustworthy, emotional support.
Want to talk to someone in person? No need to book an appointment, just pop-in to our branch for a face-to-face talk with one of our trained volunteers (see below for opening hours). Please note: there may be a wait before we can answer the door. Occasionally during normal opening hours, we are unavailable to talk. A sign will be placed on the front door to let you know.
We offer emotional support across the U.K. via telephone call, email, and text message. In branch face-to-face sessions are also available.
Are you a school, charity, or other organisation, looking to improve well-being? Please don't hesitate to contact us - our volunteers can give workshops and/or presentations, at a place of your choosing.
'Pendle, old Pendle, o'er moorland and fell. In beauty and loveliness ever to dwell...'
Set deep within the heart of 'Pendle Witch Country' our Nelson based branch is just a stone's throw away from the town centre.
Often simply referred to as 'Pendle Samaritans' we strive to make a positive contribution towards individual and public well-being.
We're proud and honoured to be able to reach out to those who need us, not only through our organisation-wide service, but as a fully involved part of our local community.
