Worthing Samaritans is still here for you
In the current Coronavirus crisis, Worthing Samaritans is still providing phone and email support to anyone who needs to talk to us.
The centre in Lennox Road, Worthing, is no longer able to see visitors face to face, and the Worthing Samaritans charity shop in Durrington has closed for the foreseeable future. All external events have been cancelled, including Information Sessions for people interested in joining Worthing Samaritans.
Worthing Samaritans Director, Liz Riach, said “We are still here for people who need us. This is a time of increased uncertainty and anxiety for many, and we want to reassure people that we will continue to provide a service for as long as we can. We are sorry to have to close our shop and no longer see callers in person, but this is in line with Government advice on social distancing and to protect our volunteers and the wider public. We are also concerned to care for our volunteers at this time, and any who feel uncomfortable about undertaking their Samaritans duties in Lennox Road, or whose who are in vulnerable groups, are free to take a break from duties.”
The 24 hour phone line 116 123 is still open, and we also welcome emails to [email protected] Any further updates will be found on our website Samaritans.org/Worthing.
