Orkney Samaritans are looking for listening volunteers with a difference

Orkney Samaritans are rather special volunteers.  With probably the best training in the sector and with high levels of support and teamwork, they gain the confidence and skills to support people who are at their lowest ebb.

At the end of a phone, or email, listening and never judging, it’s thanks to them that no one ever has to walk alone.

We’d love you to join us. If you’d like to know more about becoming a Samaritans volunteer, please give us a call on 07876635622.
