About Macclesfield & District Samaritans

Our branch has been providing support to people in our local area and beyond for many years.  

We offer emotional support in person, by telephone, by email and by text and on average each year we help over 19,000 people going through a tough time.

Our Work in the Branch

A really important part of Samaritans work is to reach out to people in the community and work with other organisations to raise awareness of what we do and offer support to as many people as we can.

We have an outreach team who work with, for example, local schools.  We love giving talks to anyone who invites us, so we can spread the word.

Volunteering in our Branch

Everyone in the Branch is a volunteer, from Phil our Director to our part time fundraisers. We have 120 volunteers. Although Samaritans is best known for its listening volunteers who answer the telephones, there are so many other ways in which you can help us. We have roles in administration, fundraising, IT support and building maintenance for example.

To find out more about volunteering at Macclesfield Samaritans, please come to one of our 2017 Information Events, as below:

  • Sat 4 Nov        10.30am
  • Wed 6 Dec      7.30pm

Our Information Events are held at The Samaritans, Boden Street off Waters Green, Macclesfield SK11 6LL.
There is no need to book or register, just come along!
We really look forward to welcoming you.

Raising Funds for our Branch can be fun!

There are so many ways you can raise money for us!

Each year our branch recieves over 19,000 calls for support.  We need your support to help us to make sure we can be there for anyone who needs us.

There are many ways in which you can help us; no contribution is too small to make a big difference. 

Would you like one of our Speakers team to come and talk to you?

If you are a teacher at a school, or a member of a club or society we would be delighted to come and talk to you about the work Samaritans do.
