Welcome!

Welcome to Sevenoaks Samaritans, a vibrant team of over 100 volunteers who help create a safe place to talk for people struggling to cope. We’re one of Samaritan’s newest hubs, established back in 2019, but since then we have made a huge impact. In fact, in 2023 we took over 20,000 calls, spending 10,000 hours listening to our callers.

Our outreach activities are expanding as we become more visible in the community. Our team will be attending different outreach activities throughout the year; keep an eye on this page for updates!

Want to volunteer?

At Sevenoaks Samaritans we’re always keen to welcome new faces to our enthusiastic and friendly growing volunteer community and we’re eager to share the wonderful feeling you get when you know you have really made a difference to someone’s day or even life.

Come for a cuppa, a chat and a look round at our Sevenoaks Samaritans open morning at 105 St John’s Hill, TN13 3PE on Saturday 24th February between 10am and 12pm.

RSVP to [email protected] or just drop in!

This January, for the first time, we have advertised for volunteers on Facebook and Instagram and the response has been amazing. You might even be one of the people who has seen or responded to one of our adverts; if you are, thank you!

More than 250 people have expressed interest in joining us and we’re gradually contacting everyone to give them all the information they need to make the decision to volunteer with us.

If you’re one those people, we should be in touch with you soon, but, if you’re keen and haven’t heard back from us yet, just get in touch on [email protected] and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

We still have places on our incredible training courses this Spring and we really hope you’ll be able to join us!
