Shrewsbury Samaritans in the community

  • We work closely with Oakwood Prison, training inmates to act as Samaritan style volunteers (Listeners) within the prison, and supporting the prison population as a whole
  • We go into schools in Shropshire to give talks and run workshops such as dealing with stress and emotional health
  • We give talks to local organisations and community groups
 
If you want to email us for emotional support, please use the address shown above ( jo@samaritans.org ) 
 
If you are contacting us about fundraising, giving talks, outreach or any other administrative matter, please email enquiries@shrewsburysamaritans.org.uk (note that this address is for admin enquiries only, and is not continually monitored, so there will be a delay in receiving a reply).

Interested in joining us?

Please come along to an Information Evening to discover what's involved in being a Samaritans volunteer. The evenings are held at the branch at Coleham Head in Shrewsbury.
 
Not all Samaritans volunteers are listening volunteers. There are many other ways to get involved such as helping with publicity and fundraising.
