Samaritans of Tyneside have been in Newcastle-upon-Tyne since 1965 serving the local communities of Newcastle, Gateshead and south-west Northumberland. Now based at 15 Portland Terrace, Jesmond, NE2 1QQ, where our phones are manned 24/7 and visitors are welcome to call in at the branch between 9am and 9pm every day of the year. We are near Jesmond Metro Station and on the B1600.

Our dedicated and trained volunteers provide a listening ear for our callers who are struggling to cope with everyday life. As a branch we are always looking for support locally so that we can be there, providing a safe place for people to be themselves and talk to us off the record about whatever is getting to them.
