Interested in Volunteering ?

You can make an amazing difference volunteering with Samaritans, helping to support people when they need someone to talk to or when they are going through a difficult time in their life.

In addition to having opportunities for listening volunteers we are always looking for volunteers who can help in our shop and with the day to day operations and fund raising of our local branch.

Please contact our dedicated recruitment team who will be happy to talk over volunteering opportunities we have available at our Whitehaven branch.
