Who are we?
South West Hertfordshire Samaritans are a group of passionate volunteers working together to make sure fewer people die by suicide.
We welcome visitors to our branch when they need someone. We help keep the national helplines running, including phone, email and SMS. We reach out to the local community including schools, rail stations and hospitals to improve people's emotional health. We support the team at HMP The Mount to reduce suicide rates.
We opened our doors 50 years ago in 1969 and we've been working hard ever since to be there for anyone - no matter who you are, no matter what life has thrown at you.
Join the team
Every 6 seconds, we need someone like you. We need more volunteers at South West Hertfordshire so we can continue to be there for people when it matters.
We're looking for local people who care about others, to join our training programme and become Samaritans volunteers. To find out more, email Yvonne on [email protected] or call 01923 233 614
Queen's Award for Voluntary Service
In 2018, the South West Hertfordshire Samaritans won the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service. This is the MBE for volunteer groups, and is the highest award given to local volunteer groups. We're so proud of our volunteers for achieving this national level of recognition for all of their hard work.
