About Stockport Samaritans

We serve as a listening ear for our local community, with ordinary people supporting those struggling to cope, round the clock, every single day of the year.

From our base in Heaton Moor, we offer emotional support by person, by telephone, by email and by text. However, we proudly support the whole of Stockport, as well as neighbouring areas.

In 2017, our Stockport branch took over 24,000 calls for help.

There are about 25-30 suicides per year in Stockport.

Volunteering at Stockport Samaritans

Everyone in our branch is a volunteer, and we are always looking for support locally. We have over 100 volunteers from a variety of backgrounds.

Being a volunteer can help change lives, and we are always looking for people to help provide this vital listening service.

Not everyone wants to be a listening volunteer however, and there are so many other ways to support Stockport Samaritans, such as administration, fundraising, or helping to look after the building. There's something for everyone.

Our outreach work in Stockport

Stockport Samaritans are actively involved with the Stockport Suicide Prevention Collaborative to help prevent suicide in our community.

We provide Samaritan awareness training to local schools, and support the Network Rail partnership, as well as speaking at various voluntary and community groups. If you would like us to give a talk, we would always be interested - please get in touch

Raising funds for Stockport Samaritans

It costs around £21,000 per year to keep our branch operating, and letting us carry out our vital work. We strongly welcome any donations however small or large, one off or regular.

Could you also raise money for us? If you have the energy or enthusiasm to organise a fundraising event on behalf of our branch, we would love to hear from you. It can be a great thing to do with friends or family.

Samaritans of Stockport is part of Samaritans, a charity registered in England and Wales (219432) and in Scotland (SC040604) and incorporated in England and Wales as a company limited by guarantee (757372)
