Welcome to Stafford Samaritans

From our branch here in Stafford, we provide confidential and emotional support, in a range of ways, to those in need of a safe space to talk. To talk over anything that may be worrying them, including those in extreme distress. Every conversation is taken seriously and judgement is never passed.

We provide talks for community groups, schools and other organisations interested in our work.

Our volunteers, whether they are providing support to callers or working behind the scenes, are making a positive mimpact to the community around the clock!

This month at Stafford Samaritans:

March :

We will be starting our training in prisons again this month and having valuable listeners to support other prisoners.
