Yeovil, Sherborne & District Samaritans

"We offer a safe place for you to talk any time, in your own way – about whatever’s getting to you."

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

Our branch has been supporting people in the local area, and nationwide, for over forty years.  Volunteers come from all walks of life, with a wide age range, and spend three hours a week in our centre supporting all kinds of people who need a confidential, non-judgmental ear to listen at a tough time in their life.  As well as contacting us by phone, we have email support and face to face at the centre. 

We also work with a wide range of other groups in Somerset including Cruse, Yeovil District Hospital, local schools.

2. You talk, we listen

We listen to you and help you talk through your concerns, worries and troubles.

We’ll focus on your thoughts and feelings rather than going into the details, so we may ask questions to help explore how you feel.
