Still listening?



Samaritans is a freephone 24-hour emotional support helpline, and as you may have heard we're looking for people to join us as listening volunteers.


If you're wondering whether that's something you could do, the good news is that you don't need any particular qualifications or degrees to apply.


You just need to be a good listener whenever somebody wants to talk to us (the average length of a call to us is 26 minutes), and have a few things in mind before you start your application.


Our listening volunteers do their shifts in one of our 16 branches nationwide (you can see the list, including addresses and areas of coverage, here) and we hope there's one near you where you could join us.
