The first week in June is UK's national Volunteering week (1-7) where organisations are celebration the work of volunteers across the national. Samaritans is a volunteer led organisation and wouldn't be able to function without ordinary people coming through our volunteer journey and giving their time to support others. The Edinburgh Branch salutes all our volunteers who make Samaritans a vibrant community of passionate volunteers.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with Edinburgh - our next information session is on Saturday 16th June at 10:30 a.m.
Our information session will give you an informal overview about our branch and what's involved in be a volunteer. As a branch, we are a team of over 100 volunteers who keep Edinburgh Branch open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In additional to this, we also fundraise and support our local community through outreach programmes, including school talks. We are always actively looking for more enthusiatic volunteers to join our branch.
In the meantime learn more about why people volunteer with Samaritans and the different types of volunteering roles available.
