Welcome to the Samaritans of Yeovil, Sherborne & District

25 The Park

Our branch has been supporting people in the local area, and nationwide, for over forty years. Volunteers come from all walks of life, with a wide age range, and spend three hours a week in our centre supporting all kinds of people who need a confidential, non-judgmental ear to listen at a tough time in their life. As well as contacting us by phone, we have email support and face to face at the centre.

We also work with a wide range of other groups in Somerset including Cruse, Yeovil District Hospital, local schools.

If you are interested in volunteering our information evenings are on the first Wednesday of every month at 25 The Park, Yeovil at 7pm. All welcome, no need to book!

As well as our listening volunteers, we have very valuable support volunteers who help with our fundraising, publicity, IT, committee.
