Samaritans - helping people in Portsmouth and East Hampshire
We have been helping people in Portsmouth for over 50 years and cover a semi-circle above the coast, including:
We are easy to spot on the London Road next to Rowlands Pharmacy. Between 9am and 10pm you can ring the door bell to talk to one of our volunteers.
Portsmouth Samaritans -
talking to local groups
We have a great outreach team who raise awareness of Samaritans' work by giving talks to local organisations and groups in the area. Contact us if you would like to know more or if you would like us to come along to your conference or event.
Network Rail and Portsmouth and East Hampshire Samaritans have a long-standing relationship and we try to have a presence at any local railway station if there has been an incident, providing leaflets for commuters in case they have been affected.
We hold regular Information Evenings where you can learn more about becoming a volunteer - Next one is 1st May starting at 19:00 - click below for more information.
