How we can help
The branch has been offering its service to the York community for over 50 years
We help and support thousands of people every year in the York area and currently have 123 listening and non-listening members, either trained or in training.
Just some of our services include supporting the university with an anonymous and confidential drop-ins on campus, talking to young people in and around schools in the city about looking out for their emotional wellbeing, having a presence at street parties and festivals and face to face listening at the branch.
Just recently the Yorkshire and Humberside Region of Samaritans have launched a Rural Support initiative, in partnership with the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, aimed at reducing incidences of suicide and alleviating mental ill health amongst the rural community.
We are already working with the rural community across the region and will continue to attend rural events and shows, throughout 2019 to raise awareness of the benefits gained by sharing problems and troubling thoughts by talking about them.
The official launch of the initiative took place at the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate on the 10th July 2019 and was announced by BBC Radio York.
As you can see we are dedicated to the York community and we are always needing help, so if you wish to volunteer please do get in touch and email us at [email protected]
