Thinking of volunteering with the Samaritans?

Everyone has it in them to be a Samaritans volunteer. To touch another person's life when it matters, by giving them the space to talk through how they are feeling or helping to keep the charity's branches running.

Former Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallett is a supporter of the Samaritans: could you volunteer?

Pendle, Burnley, Craven and Rossendale branch, which is based in Market Square, Nelson, is making a plea to members of the community, to sign up to support people who might not have anywhere else to turn. If you have just a few spare hours a week they would like to hear from you.

Samaritans offers round-the-clock emotional support for anyone feeling down, depressed, anxious or unhappy. The confidential service is offered by phone, email, text, letter and face-to-face.

Information events are being held on Saturday at 10am and Wednesday at 7pm where you can find out more. Email [email protected] or call the recruitment line on 07514421658.
