What we do

Samaritans’ Vision is that fewer people die by suicide.  We work to achieve this vision by making it our Mission to alleviate emotional distress and reduce the incidence of suicidal feelings and suicidal behaviour. We’ve been in Basingstoke for over 40 years and receive over 15,000 calls per year. Read more…


If you volunteer as a ‘listener’ during the day or night, you’ll develop the confidence and precious know-how to turn your natural instinct to want to help someone in difficulty into positive, sometimes life-changing support by phone, email, text message, and face to face. Read more…

Preloved Bazaar

You can support us by shopping at our very own online ebay charity shop and find some fantastic bargains at the same time. Visit www.prelovedbazaar.co.uk.  We’re always in need of donations and can often collect.  All the money raised goes towards keeping our branch open to enable us to be there for our callers.
