Coronavirus

At moment, unfortunately, we are unable to receive face to face visitors in the centre, which is closed to the public. Our shop will reopen in mid-July. Recruitment and New Samaritan training are once again taking place.

Our Branch

Our volunteers have been helping people in the Weston Super Mare and North Somerset area for more than 40 years. Part of the South West region of Samaritans, our branch covers a large area including Weston Super Mare, Blagdon, Burnham on Sea, Clevedon, Portishead and Wedmore. We are proud to support and be part of our local community.

Volunteers at our branch respond to calls and emails from people locally and across the country. In 2019 volunteers at our branch answered 14,025 phone calls, over 1,016 emails and more than 900 text messages from people experiencing emotional distress.
