Become a volunteer for Samaritans

Want to make a difference in people's lives when they need it most?  Apply now to become a volunteer telephone listener for Samaritans.

Samaritans of Wellington are seeking volunteers to answer calls to our helpline for those feeling depressed, lonely or suicidal. 

Samaritans are there to help people through the tough times in their life, whether they are struggling to cope with depression, loneliness, bereavement, relationship breakdown, financial stress or any of the myriad challenges life throws at us.

We are looking for people who are good listeners, non-judgmental and empathetic.  No experience is required.  Training will be provided.  Our next volunteer training course begins on Saturday 15 July 2017 in Thorndon, Wellington. 

If you have a couple of spare hours during the day and/or evening and are interested in becoming a Samaritans volunteer please phone the office on (04) 472-3676 to find out more or click on Volunteer to fill out an application form.
