Our listening volunteers are here so that people can talk to them about anything that is troubling them and explore their options. They give people time to think things through, and listen with an open mind and in confidence, for as long as needed. Edinburgh and the Lothians Samaritans offer callers a 24 hour service, 365 days of the year. By volunteering with us you are helping us to maintain this important service.
Interested in getting involved as a listening volunteer? The first step of the process is to attend an information evening at our branch in Edinburgh. This is an opportunity for you to get to know what it is like to be a volunteer from current Samaritans.
Our next information session is being held on Saturday 23 September at 10:30am and to attend:
Phone our office number on 0131 229 4348 (Mon-Fri)
If you are interested but can't come in September - there are plenty of opportunities to attend an information event later in the year.
