Samaritans of Cornwall at Truro
Since 1970, Cornwall Samaritans have been listening to those in need of an empathetic ear when things are getting to them. As well as a freephone telephone service, we answer emails and, in non-Covid times, welcome callers for face to face conversations in the branch. When possible, we will also return to our Outreach activities in the community.
Our Charity shop
Our amazing shop at Par Market is open fully now on Wednesdays, Sat and Sundays. Come and pick up a bargain and help support our amazing branch. Find out more about visiting or volunteering at our charity shop here.
Volunteering with our branch
The ongoing Covid pandemic has been a busy time for us, and our volunteers (currently 100 active listeners) have managed to keep the branch open throughout.
There are 2 types of volunteers, all ordinary people who have followed the Samaritan training programme.
Support Volunteers are crucial in all kinds of ways in keeping the branch running – for example as an independent charity we are responsible for our own running costs.
Listening Volunteers, who are at the end of the line for callers.
The past year has seen a rise in the number of people wanting to volunteer with us, both in support and listening roles, but if you are keen to find out more and are happy to wait for a place on the training programme please call our Admin line and leave a message 01872 222321 or email [email protected]
