Cornwall Samaritans at Truro
Cornwall Samaritans took its first call over 40 years' ago in March 1970. Our volunteers are ordinary people supporting those struggling to cope, round the clock, every single day of the year.
As a branch we are always looking for support locally so that we can be there, providing a safe place for people to be themselves and talk to us off the record about whatever is getting to them.
Our work in the community
As well as offering emotional support to people by telephone, email and face to face at Treyew Road we also reach out to support people within the community.
Each week we provide valuable emotional support within Treliske Hospitals A&E unit. We support patients, their friends and families and staff within the department. We also provide monthly support to the PEaT project in Penzance. Plant,Eat and Teach community garden.
Volunteer with us!
Being a volunteer can help change lives and we are always looking for people to help us continue providing our service. Why not pop along to an information session to learn more about becoming a volunteer, what we do, and ways you could help?
Not everyone wants to be a listening volunteer, but there are so many ways to support Samaritans such as administration, fundraising, joining our Friends groups or helping to look after the building. There is something for everyone so do come along and find out more!
