Swindon and District Samaritans have been offering emotional support to anyone in crisis for over 50 years.

You can telephone, email or call in to see us at our premises at 6 Curtis Street near Swindon town centre. You don’t need an appointment to talk to one of our trained volunteers but it is worth ‘phoning us first to see if we are open when you plan to visit.

We are active in the community and regularly visit the Jobcentre, Erlestoke Prison and local events. Our volunteers are also available to deliver presentations about our work and emotional health to schools, workplaces, clubs and organisations.
