Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a volunteer Samaritan?
Blackburn, Hyndburn & Ribble Valley Samaritans are urging members of the local 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 contact.
There is a wide range of roles available to suit people with different skills, from taking calls to the helpline, to providing administrative and IT support or organising fundraising activities for the branch. For more information, why not attend the information session on all aspects of becoming a Samaritan to have any questions answered. Alternatively call or email the branch for more information.
The next Information session is on Monday, Septmeber 14th at 9 pm and will be held at the branch on 105 New Park Street, Blackburn, BB2 1DF. For more information, contact 01254 662266 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
