Our NEW HOME, Morley House

As you may have heard, Samaritans Yeovil Sherborne & District have moved into our new home, Morley House, in Yeovil Town Centre and we are now fully up and running. Our volunteers are taking phone calls, emails and texts locally and across the UK

If you need to speak to a Samaritan in person visitors are welcome Monday to Saturday 10 am to 2pm

Our monthly OPEN EVENINGS will take place in 2020 at Morley House

If you are thinking about whether volunteering as a Samaritan is for you, do come to one of our Open Evenings. They are friendly and welcoming forums, hosted by existing volunteers who are on hand to chat to you, tell you a little bit about what’s required to be a volunteer as well as answer any of your questions. And of course, there’s always plenty of tea on tap to keep the conversation flowing!

Our open evenings are held on the first Wednesday of every month 7pm. There’s no need to book and anyone who is thinking about volunteering is welcome to attend.

These are now the confirmed dates for our 2020 Open Evenings:

Wednesday February 5th

VOLUNTEERS

Listening volunteers spend three hours a week in our centre supporting all kinds of people who need a confidential, non-judgemental ear to listen at a tough time in their life. We talk to people on the phone, face-to-face at our premises, by email and by text.

We also have a vital team of Support volunteers who give their time to help with fundraising, publicity, IT, and committee work.
