Samaritans in Spain, is operated by Costa Blanca Samaritans and offers a free, completely confidential, non-judgemental emotional support service for any English speaker of any age who may be experiencing distress or despair. They believe that whatever problems someone may have, whether big or small, they do not have to be alone with them.
There are 60 volunteers who work for the Samaritans and lines are open 24 hours a day 365 days a year on 902 88 35 35 or Freephone 900 525 100 or via email support service: Pat@samaritansinspain.com. Or in Spanish you can call: 957 131 225
The group will be expanding and developing the service, which is based very much on the established Samaritan model, which has been in operation in the UK since 1953. They have had the support of Samaritans UK throughout the time they have been establishing themselves in Spain.
The project began in September 2005 and culminated in the launch of the Costa Blanca Samaritans service in Spain in July 2008 when they opened the first Branch in Benissa.
