Volunteer roles within Barnsley Samaritans

Barnsley Samaritans is run entirely by volunteers. We are a friendly bunch who enjoy meeting new people and have new volunteers join us.

There are many ways to help and we have volunteering opportunities to suit everyone! Here are just some of the roles that we have available.

Samaritans listening volunteers

These volunteers provide the service that Samaritans is famous for: listening to others in need of support. For the role, we are looking for people who are:

  •    caring
  •    empathetic
  •    non-judgemental
  •    able to listen without prejudice
  •    there for people when they need it the most.

Support Volunteers

We are also always looking for people to help with Adminstration, IT, Fundraising, Publicity etc, if you have any skills in these areas and can spare some time we woud love to hear from you.  

Volunteering can prove a fulfilling and worthwhile experience. Read more on the benefits of volunteering.
