Please be advised that due to COVID-19 we are not currently accepting face-to-face visitors at the branch. Please contact us on our freephone number: 116 123 or email us at: [email protected]

Peterborough Samaritans has been supporting Peterborough and the surrounding area for 50 years.

What's going on in Peterborough?

As well as delivering our listening service, we support HMP Peterborough and HMP North Sea Camp by training prisoners to provide emotional support to their peers.

Our Outreach team regularly deliver talks and/or training at schools, local employers and community groups. And of course, we host the occasional fundraiser.

Want to volunteer?

We are always on the lookout for new volunteers either to provide emotional support or behind the scenes to help the branch run. Why not join us and help make a real difference to peoples lives, be part of a large community and learn new skills that are relevant to work and everyday life.

We would normally hold information events at the branch at 10am on the last Sunday of each month (except August and December). However due to COVID-19 cases in the UK, Samaritans has moved all information sessions online. Our information sessions give you the opportunity to find out about our branch and what it is like to volunteer with us. We'll take you through the different elements of your training and give you a chance to ask questions about the process.

The dates for 2022 will be conformed as soon as possible.

If you'd like to hear more call us on 01733 807327 (answerphone), email: [email protected] or follow the links below. We are especially interested in volunteers who can help us with IT.
