Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Samaritans of Liverpool and Merseyside.
The first step to becoming a volunteer with us is attending one of our Information Evenings. These are informal events where you'll be able to meet a few of our current volunteers who will talk you through the different roles we have available, the training involved, and what it's like to volunteer with Samaritans. We'll play a few short videos to demonstrate what it's like to volunteer with us, and there will be the chance to ask questions either during the presentation, or one to one afterwards.
This is a full information evening; not a drop in session, therefore please do sign up to the date that's most convenient for you. (If you are running a few minutes late on the evening, do not worry, still come along!)
We look forward to seeing you there.
Please note: if you've arrived directly at this page without having previously visited our website, please do check out all the information we have online regarding volunteering, available here: http://www.samaritans.org/volunteer-us
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Parking is not available on site, as this is reserved for volunteers who are supporting our callers. Our neighbours, Aigburth Training Opportunities, located on Pomona Street to the rear of Clarence Street, kindly allow their car park to be used, however space is limited. If parking here, please place a sign stating 'Samaritans' in your window, then make your way to the front entrance on Clarence Street.
On street parking may also be found on Mount Pleasant - please note the pay and display charges.
Two accessible parking bays can be found on Pleasant Street for blue badge holders.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
We're all volunteers and therefore we try to get back to you as quickly as we can, but can't always come to the phone. Prior to the event, please call 0300 302 0890 option 2 with any questions. On the evening of the event, please call 0300 302 0890 extension 5005#.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No - we will have the list of attendees available.
Will refreshments be provided?
Yes - tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided on the evening.
