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 the increase in the rise of COVID-19 cases in the UK, Samaritans has decided to stop all information events at the Branch until further notice.

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