Update on Covid-19 and Samaritans new training options
We are aware that for many organisations COVID-19 (coronavirus) is creating a lot of uncertainty and this may be having an impact on your business and your employees in a number of ways. We understand that any kind of uncertainty can have an impact on people’s wellbeing – as such, Samaritans have created some advice and guidance should you be worried about your mental or emotional health during this time which can be found here.
Samaritans’ official response is to support best efforts to slow the spread of the illness by reducing the risk not only to yourself, but to those around you. In order to protect yourselves, delegates and organisations who book with us, we have taken the decision to postpone all face-to-face training courses.
In order to try and deliver our training, which is possibly even more important given the current challenges, we would like to offer virtual facilitated versions of the courses which delegates can access from their homes. Please fill in the on-form for the course if you are interested in digital delivery please state in the comments box.
If you prefer to wait for face to face training, please complete an in-house enquiry form and we will stay in contact with you until Government guidelines change.
Thank you so much for your support at this difficult time, income from Samaritans training courses supports the delivery of Samaritans core service, as a result last year income from Workplace Training supported the cost of 55,000 calls for help to Samaritans free call help line.

I would advise anyone that if given the chance to attend one of these courses then grasp it with both hands. One of the best training sessions that I have attended in my 36 years of railway employment.
