Sa­mar­i­tans hon­our 50 years of ser­vice

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

SU­BI­ACO’S Sa­mar­i­tans Sui­cide Crisis Line is mark­ing 50 years of ser­vice to the com­mu­nity.

The Sa­mar­i­tans are putting a call out to for­mer vol­un­teers to join cur­rent vol­un­teers in hon­our­ing the work that has been done over the past five decades.

The Sa­mar­i­tans is a crisis line that pro­vides 24/7 anony­mous crisis sup­port.

Call­ers may be sui­ci­dal or dis­tressed by fac­tors in their life and need some­one to lis­ten to them.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion helps call­ers “work through their sit­u­a­tion and onto their jour­ney back”.

“The Sa­mar­i­tans re­ceive over 10,000 calls per month from peo­ple who of­ten have no-one to sup­port them,” a spokesper­son said.

“The Sa­mar­i­tans can do that. If you are in distress, you can call Sa­mar­i­tans on 13 52 47.

“If you are a past vol­un­teer of The Sa­mar­i­tans – formerly called Sa­mar­i­tans Crisis Line – then we’d love to have you at­tend our cel­e­bra­tion, which is gen­er­ously sup­ported by Vol­un­teers WA.

“The cel­e­bra­tion will be held dur­ing Vol­un­teer Week on Satur­day, May 13.”

If you are a past vol­un­teer or know one, get in touch with The Sa­mar­i­tans for more de­tails.
