Samaritans Wellington are seeking volunteers to answer calls to our helpline for those feeling lonely, depressed or suicidal.
You can make an amazing difference by becoming a volunteer telephone counsellor for Samaritans and helping to support people when they need someone to talk to or when they are going through a difficult time in their life.
Samaritans volunteer, Isadore, who lost her husband to suicide when her daughter was 7 years old, wants to save other families from going through what her family did.
