Volunteering with Samaritans

Giving some time to be a Samaritan means being there for people who desperately need someone. And that really matters.

Right now we need volunteers more than ever. Find out how you can help.

Ways you can help Samaritans

I've learned so much about life and people. It's humbling and rewarding to be able to help in some small way by being there for people who need us.

What you get out of being a volunteer

You’ll learn valuable new skills, make new friendships, and be part of an amazing group of people. But above all you’ll have the incredible satisfaction of knowing you’re helping people who are in despair.

The kind of people we’re looking for

We’re just looking for people who want to help others, are tolerant and open-minded. You don’t have to have gone through particular life experiences or be a special kind of person. Everyone over 18 is welcome.
