Samaritans Lends An Ear At Wellbeing Roadshow In Sheffield – 16th Aug 2018

13 Aug

Samaritans volunteers and Sheffield City Council staff will be meeting local residents on Thursday 16 August. The charity will be running a roadshow, sharing wellbeing tips and highlighting the support available to anyone in the community who may not be coping.

The roadshow will run from 10am to 5pm, with Samaritans volunteers providing emotional support in the We Listen trailer in Barkers Pool, Sheffield.

Local mental health charities, Sheffield Mind and Sheffield Flourish are also setting up a stall to raise awareness of their local support and advice services.

Jane Hewitt, volunteer and Director of Samaritans’ Sheffield Branch said: “As Samaritans volunteers, we know how much listening to someone at a low point can help them feel less alone. It makes them more able to deal with difficult thoughts and feelings, and gives them the time and space to reflect and move on.

People will have the opportunity to fill in a ‘Thank You for Listening’ postcard for someone who has listened to them when they needed them to. The cards will be available at the roadshow.

Samaritans hosts a range of outreach events every year throughout the UK and Ireland to raise awareness of the charity and encourage people to seek help before reaching crisis point.

Anyone can contact Samaritans any time, for free, from any phone on 116 123, even a mobile without credit. The number will not show up on your phone bill. You can also email jo@samaritans.org or go to www.samaritans.org to find details of your nearest branch where you can talk to one of our trained volunteers face to face.

For further information, please contact Samaritans’ press office on 020 8394 8300 or press@samaritans.org.
