Who are we?

South West Herts Samaritans are a group of passionate volunteers working together to make sure fewer people die by suicide.

We help to keep the national helplines running, including phone and email, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. We reach out to the local community, including schools, railway stations and hospitals, to improve people's emotional health. We train and support the team of Listening volunteers at HMP The Mount.

We opened our doors over 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 7 seconds, we need someone like you. We need more volunteers at South West Herts 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. If you have any questions you can email [email protected] or call 01923 233 614: if you're ready to apply, just click on the 'volunteer at this branch' button below.
