Samaritans of Inverness news

  • Workplace training

    22nd July 2018
    We have a team who are prepared to visit any charity, local community group and businesses. The sessions are aimed at volunteers and employees who come into contact with people who are going through emotional stress, struggling to cope or at risk of suicide. The training focusses on listening and questioning skills, a barrier to listening, appropriate responses, and offers a chance to practice skills learned. If you would like us to visit your organisation or business please contact by completing the link on the enquiry button to the right.
  • Information sessions for new volunteers

    We hold informal information sessions twice a year, our next informal session will be held on Tuesday 4th September at 7pm and again on Saturday 8th September at 10am.

  • Help us raise funds locally

    As a charity we receive no government funding and rely on the generosity of local people, businesses and some grants from statuary bodies like the Council and the Highland Health Board. We continue to strive to raise funds with a variety of activities and local fund-raising events.
