Lancaster Samaritans has been providing a service in the local community for over 40 years.
We operate our listening service from our premises, 21 Sun Street, in the heart of Lancaster.
This Branch answered over 30,000 contacts last year; this number includes telephone, face to face callers, email, SMS, and HMP Lancaster Farm contacts.
We have around 85 volunteers who provide this 24 hour listening service at Sun Street and we recruit and train continually in order to keep our numbers consistent. Click here for Volunteer Recruitment information.
Our branch runs entirely from charitable donations with help of proceeds from our Charity Shop at Damside Street in Lancaster and from grant applications, legacies, charity of the year schemes and individual donations. For more information please follow this link; Donations
We have a dedicated Awareness Raising and Speakers Team who are willing to come and give a talk or publicise Samaritans to your organisation, should you wish.
We are also looking for safe sites to place our charity collecting boxes which we will service on a regular basis.
