Samaritans in Spain

What They Do!

Sometimes in our lives we feel desperate, alone, grief stricken, very sad, depressed, or even suicidal. This amazing group of people are on hand to help you regardless of your problems, thoughts and desperation. They dedicate their time for free and have great experience and kindness between them. Sometimes we just need to talk to a listener and that’s what they do!

As a care at home company I felt they needed to bring awareness to what help is out there. Our carers do an amazing job above and beyond their expectations however, these people are trained and on the end of a freephone number available from 10 a.m until 10 p.m everyday.

Not all of us are lucky to have a best friend a trusted family member to talk to in confidence.

Samaritans in Spain began in July 2008 and was launched under the registered name of Costa Blanca Samaritans.  We are a member of Befrienders Worldwide, an organisation made up of listening service providers from across the globe.  We are very much based on the established Samaritans model, which has been in operation in the UK since 1953.  We are available to all English speakers, irrespective of nationality, who reside in mainland Spain and the Islands.

Our service is offered via FREEPHONE 900 525 100 and we are there for when you have feelings that need to be expressed in order to protect your well being.  We want to help you to feel empowered – to take back some control.

In taking that important step and calling our number, we want you to feel safe in the knowledge that you can talk with us in total confidence and without judgement. For this reason, our volunteers undergo extensive training and mentoring sessions before being permitted to take calls. 

As well as our listening service, we also have our charity shop which is based in Punta Marina Commercial Centre on the Costa Blanca.
