How we can help
We are available for face to face meetings usually from 10:00am till 04:00pm. However, we may close at short notice, and volunteers may be busy on calls when you call. so we may not be able to see you if you call. If this does happen we are really sorry. THIS SERVICE IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK.

Our volunteers are available every day 365 days a year answering calls and emails.

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.
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.
