Support Volunteers

There are a variety of roles required to run a succesful branch, and this isn't confined to the listening roles. Support volunteers help with the many other branch activities including:

  • Publicity - all things do to with promoting the branch. This also includes liaising with the media team.
  • Media - People who manage internal and external websites (such as this one) and generate content on Twitter and Facebook.
  • Administration – day-to-day running of a Samaritans branch.
  • Fundraising – planning and delivering fundraising activities for the branch.
  • Finance.
  • IT support – maintaining the computer systems and networks.
