Samaritans of Taunton and Somerset
Who we are
Samaritans provides confidential non-judgemental emotional support, 24 hours a day for people who are experiencing feelings of distress or despair, including those which could lead to suicide. Samaritans have had a Branch in Taunton for over 40 years. The doors are open from 9am to 9pm every day to visitors and, nationally, telephones are manned 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We have approximately 100 volunteers, taking over 40,000 calls a year. We also respond to e-mails and texts. In addition, our speakers give talks to schools, colleges, clubs and other groups. We accept third party referral calls from many organisations, including our local hospitals and various other agencies. Samaritans can be contacted by telephone, by letter, by email and text or by visiting the branch in Wood Street, Taunton. All our members are volunteers but we need your donations to keep our branch running and our phone lines available. Your support will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
