Do you have a caring nature and a few hours a week to spare?

If you have a caring nature and a few hours a week to spare consider becoming a Cyprus Samaritan listening volunteer.

Samaritans  are ordinary people just like you who have been trained to listen to people who are feeling lonely, distressed or in despair.

Interested in Volunteering?


In order to be a listening volunteer you do not need prior experience or qualifications as full training will be given by us.


Initial training courses are currently held at our Chlorakas (Paphos) or Limassol Centres in the Spring and Autumn of each year, involving four six-hour sessions. We also require complete confidentiality even at this early stage, due to the nature of our service.


Our training team would like to hear from you on 8000 7773 between 4pm and midnight any evening or email:

confidential@cyprussamaritans.org

Please contact us to find out more about this rewarding work.

Maybe you feel you won't be up to it.  Relax.  Everyone feels like that at first.

You don't need any formal qualifications or previous experience to be a Samaritan.  You do need to be able to listen and not judge people - by allowing them the time and space to explore and express their feelings.

Are you 18 or over and able to give up 4 hours a week?

Our service is delivered mostly on the telephone but we do see callers face to face in our centre and more and more we are supporting people by email.

It can be a challenging experience, but we will fully prepare you before you become a volunteer.  Your commitment will be recognised and your skills and experience constantly developed.

With Samaritans you grow as a person.  Many of our volunteers say it's the most rewarding thing they've ever done.

To volunteer contact: 26 93 46 82 any evening between  4 p.m. and midnight.  

Or you can write to Sam at: P.O. Box 64420, 8074 Paphos, Cyprus.

SUPPORTING THE CYPRUS SAMARITANS

Cyprus Samaritans is run entirely by volunteers and although we have no paid help we do have expenses and bills to pay.

We do not receive any state assistance and funds are raised by the efforts of the volunteers and friends.

Our main source of income is through the operation of our Charity Shops, on Apostolou Pavlou Avenue in Pafos & 13 Georgiou Griva Digeni St. in Chloraka, and 43 Agia Fylaxeos St. in Limassol. The shops are run by volunteers and rely on donations of clothing, acessories, household items and furniture for sell.

From time to time we do receive donations from other organisations and occasional sponsorships from businesses. Additionally, we hold a number of fund raising activities throughout the year such as our Easter and Christmas Fayres, quiz and dinner dance nights.

We are always in need of further help; if you would like to assist us, you can do so.

Just contact us: 26 93 46 82 any evening between 4 p.m. and midnight.  

Or you can write to Sam at: P.O. Box 64420, 8074 Paphos, Cyprus.
