Salisbury and District Samaritans

Every year, 120 local listening volunteers receive over 20,000 calls and emails from people in crisis and in need of immediate emotional support. Our support volunteers help us to raise money, raise awareness of our services, organise events, keep our computers working or contribute to the many administrative roles that keep our branch running smoothly.

We support our local prison through the Samaritans Listeners scheme, training and supporting Prison Listeners.

We support our local community through an active outreach programme. Through outreach we support people who are in distress in our community. We also work to promote awareness of listening skills and explain how active listening can help people who are struggling. We work to improve understanding of emotional health and how it impacts on young people's wellbeing. We support our military on Salisbury Plain by attending welfare events and giving presentations to serving members of the armed forces. Our speakers make presentations to local organisations and clubs, both for general awareness of Samaritans and to help people who provide emotional support in their roles.

  • Particularly important are the regular monthly donations from our “Friends of Salisbury Samaritans”. These monthly donations are the gifts that keep on giving.  You can donate monthly amounts between £10 and £25 while companies and other local donors make often larger and much appreciated monthly donations. Such regular donations, whether small or large, are all gratefully received and enable us to keep supporting people.
