About this cause

About our cause

The Maidstone and Weald Samaritans Group is at 48 Grecian Street, Maidstone where there are just over 80 volunteers providing a 24/7 service via the telephone, email or text. We also have facilities for visitors to the centre. All listening volunteers go through extensive training before being able to be part of the team and to take calls. We are part of the national Samaritans scheme and provide a 24/7 listening service to those in distress or despair. Our branch deals with circa 14,000 contacts each year by telephone, email, texts and personal visits and we have circa 80 listening volunteers at any one time. A registered charity, we have no paid personnel but it costs around £50 per day to run the centre and all our income comes from donations that we raise locally - we receive no central funding.
