Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Our branch is situated in the town of Ashington ("the biggest pit village in the world") in south east Northumberland. We are the only Samaritans' branch in Northumberland and draw volunteers from all over the county. Our volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and find their involvement with Samaritans a very rewarding experience.

An unusual aspect of our branch is that we provide training and support to prison inmates who are then able to act as listening volunteers to other prisoners.
