Volunteer with us

Over the past year, thousands of callers have made contact with Newry and Dundalk Samaritans both over the phone and face-to-face. In addition, we have responded to thousands of emails and texts. Every day and night throughout the year, our 100 volunteers have made sure that there have always been Samaritans ready to listen to anyone who needs to talk. 
We are always looking for people to join our branch.  In addition to listening volunteers who support callers, we look for people who will help us in a variety of roles, from fundraising to administration. If you are interested in volunteering please contact our Branch, click the link above or email newrysamaritans@hotmail.com


The branch relies on the kind donations of businesses and members of the public.  Any donation is always gratefully received by the branch as it means that we are able to keep the doors and phone lines open so that we can support any caller that wishes to make contact


About us...

Established in 1973, we have members from Dundrum Bay to Castlebellingham. Our branch has roughly 100 volunteers who all give freely of their time to help those in distress, no one at Newry branch gets paid for the work they do to help others.
Samaritans' vision is that fewer people die by suicide. We work to achieve this vision by making it our mission to alleviate emotional distress and reduce the incidence of suicide feelings and suicidal behaviour.
