Volunteers needed by Samaritans

Most people are aware of our organisation, we are an important outlet for anyone to call or email us when they are facing all sorts of difficulties and pressures.

As a national organisation we are taking circa 6 million calls a year; this emphasises the need for all we offer.

We have had a presence on Isle of Wight for 40 years and want to continue to support our callers for many years to come. To that end we need you to join us.

We rely on volunteers to take calls from the public, they are normally because the caller is in some form of distress and needs a listening ear.

We offer first class training and support for all of our volunteers, this takes the form of a 6 week initial training followed by one to one support and ongoing training thereafter.
