Samaritans offers free, non-judgemental emotional support to those experiencing difficulties in their lives, and our service is available 24/7. To be the volunteer who is there for a caller in their time of need is a unique and rewarding experience. Here in Salisbury, the Samaritans Branch is one of the longest established in the country, dealing each year with over 17,000 calls, face to face meetings, emails and text messages – well above the national average for a branch of our size.
Unfortunately, despite all the hard efforts of our current team, we do not have enough listening volunteers to keep the Salisbury Branch open 24/7. We would need at least 20 more volunteers to achieve this target. Could you help?
