Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, Rotherham Samaritans have regretfully stopped all Face to Face callers and all other visitors to the branch. In August we begun outdoor outreach activities in line with Covid 19 restrictions and we are working in partnership with Network Rail within our local communities. You will see us out and about in October.
We will update these website details when this situation changes.
Callers can still phone the Samaritans for free on 116 123 or send an email to [email protected]
Please do consider using Amazon Smile if you shop on line to generate funds to help run our branch. Thank you, we really do appreciate this support to keep our branch running very much indeed.
