Volunteers for The Samaritans in Kingston and Surbiton. Help this national charitable organisation.

The Samaritans are one of the most well-known and invaluable charitable organisations in the UK, and offer confidential advice and emotional care for those in distress.


The Kingston branch alone needs 85 charity volunteers on duty every week and your involvement could really make a difference. 


Samaritans charitable volunteers are ordinary people who hail from all walks of life, linked by the simple fact they share an ability to listen and care without passing judgement.


The friendly and welcoming charity team are a mixed group representing all races, creeds, backgrounds and personalities. To be a charitable volunteer, you must be at least 18 years old (although don't be put off if you are well and truly past that age barrier as all adult age groups are welcomed).


The Kingston branch opened in 1968 and has always offered a listening ear 24/7 for callers. Their mission is to be available any time of day to provide emotional support and care for those experiencing feelings of despair.


As you would expect from one of the major charitable organisations, Kingston Samaritans fully prepare and train their charity volunteers. This includes taking part in skills practice exercises and group sessions to learn about active listening and different types of calls.


If you can spare a few hours a week why not visit one of their Information Evenings to find out how you can become part of one of the country's prominent charitable organisations.
