Support Volunteers

Would you like to help keep our branch running smoothly?

Samaritans of Farnborough & District have been supporting our local community since 1978, working towards a world where fewer people die by suicide. We offer a safe place to talk if people are feeling emotionally distressed or are having a difficult time and need to talk things through in a confidential and safe environment.

We are looking for volunteers who can help us with technical support and administration. Whatever your skills, there’s bound to be something that fits you perfectly!

Volunteering at Samaritans of Farnborough & District is an incredibly rewarding experience. We have a team of over 100 volunteers, both listening and support. With an age range of early 20s to over 90, and volunteers from all walks of life, we’re a really varied group.


We are looking for people who have the same values as us:-

  • Open-minded
  • Empathetic
  • Accepting
  • Supportive
  • Discreet
  • Honest

Training and Support

You’ll be asked to complete an online induction that will introduce you to Samaritans and give you an understanding of what we do and don’t do. We’ll also explain our vision and our values. Once you start volunteering, we’ll support you in specific tasks and roles. If you need support there will always be someone who can give you a hand, explain something or just have a chat. 

More about Us

Farnborough & District Samaritans is filled with friendly faces, and you’re guaranteed a smile when you walk into the branch. There’s always somebody to chat to and, if you need a little support yourself, someone to give you a helping hand. We encourage a community spirit by hosting special events for volunteers, such as barbeques, tea parties and curry nights. If you’re looking for new friends, this is the perfect place to make them.
