The Windsor Castle, Bath

If you're struggling to cope, and need someone to talk to in confidence, give us a call. People contact us every few minutes in Bath, throughout the day and night.  Someone is there, around the clock, to listen to whatever's troubling you, even if life seems too difficult to go on.  You will speak to someone who is just an ordinary person but who cares about what you’re going through.  We don’t judge and we won’t tell - but we will listen. Call us on 116 123 from any phone, for free.

Samaritans out and about: You’ll also see us each Monday evening in the Emergency Department at RUH talking to patients and their families. Or perhaps when we visit local schools, businesses or maybe when we are helping at Leyhill Open Prison.

Get involved, and help us help others: If you are interested in helping Samaritans with our work and want to know more, come along to one of our informal information evenings and find out more about volunteering with us. There are lots of ways to help and we always welcome new Samaritans.

Perhaps your group or organisation would like us to visit and tell you about Samaritans and what we do. Or you may be thinking of making a donation. We rely on the generosity of our donors to keep our phone lines open.

Whatever’s on your mind - do contact us.


Information Sessions For New Volunteers

Our next open Information Evenings sessions, which anyone may attend, will be held at the branch on:

Monday 5th March 2018

Tuesday 27th March 2018

The meetings start at 7.30pm (arrive 7.15 for coffee and biscuits) and go on until 9.00pm. All are welcome and there's no need to book in advance.  At these evenings we will talk in more detail about what being a Samaritan entails.  It will help you decide if you wish to take things futher.
