We rely entirely on donations from the public, businesses, other organisations and the generosity of our volunteers time.
We’re a busy South West London branch covering areas that include Balham, Barnes, Clapham, Mitcham, Morden, Tooting, Putney, Southfields, Wandsworth and Wimbledon.
With over 170 caring volunteers who are trained to support callers day and night, we help people talk through their troubles and worries. And through active listening and gentle, sensitive questioning we try our best to help callers, in their own time, to find the answers that are right for them.
As you’d expect in this part of London, our volunteers come from all walks of life – we’re truly a diverse branch made up of all ages, background, genders and ethnicities.
Our branch is just off the high street in Putney and provides a great environment for volunteering. More importantly, it’s a safe and confidential space for callers who come in for face-to-face support. We’re also active in our local community through our programme with Network Rail, our outreach activities and our presence at local events – do come and say hello if you see us.
I believe that by fully supporting our volunteers, they, in turn, provide the best support possible for our callers. This is my wholehearted commitment as branch director.
Please get in touch if you’d like to know more about what we do and how we can help.
