Teesside Samaritans' work within the community
We support local schools, colleges and universities. This includes providing promotional materials designed for a younger audience, speaking to children in schools, and developing a positive relationship with the local university. For the past 23 years, Teesside Samaritans has also worked closely with both H.M. Prison Holme House and H.M. Prison Kirklevingston Grange.
Volunteering with Teesside Samaritans
Regular information sessions are held throughout the year to give people an insight into the sort of roles available. We are always in need of more volunteers, so even if you aren't sure listening is for you, there are still plenty of ways to help.

Fundraising for Teesside Samaritans
Teesside Samaritans relies completely on the support of the local community so that we can continue providing our services.
