Volunteering at Weston Super Mare & North Somerset Samaritans

Volunteers are at the heart of Samaritans and we welcome volunteers from all walks of life.

Our volunteers receive full training and support at the branch, and can make a real difference to people's lives.

Most of our volunteers join our listening service providing emotional support to callers.

We are also on the lookout for support volunteers, who make an important contribution to the branch by undertaking a wide range of other activities, such as administrative work, fundraising  IT, publicity or helping us look after our building.
