Integrated Care Partnership, Epsom
Downview Prison & Visitors Centre
The Downview Visitors’ Centre works with the families of prisoners at Downview women’s prison.
Having a wife, daughter or mother in prison can be a very distressing time for the family. They may be worried about the prisoner or worried about those left at home such as children. Many family members have to travel a long way which can add to the distress.
Our branch attends on alternate Thursdays and Saturdays to support the families and raise awareness of the work Samaritans do.

Network Rail Partnership
As part of Samaritans organisation wide partnership with Network Rail, Leatherhead branch has links with Leatherhead, Dorking, Ashtead and Epsom stations. We have a specially trained team of volunteers who are able to attend stations to offer support to anyone vulnerable who might need it and also attend following an incident to support, passengers and staff.
We can also be found running awareness events at our local stations handing out leaflets and contact cards so please come say hello and take a card, even if you don't need it, someone you know might one day. We publicise where we will be through our Twitter feed (@LeatherheadSams)
