Volunteers from the Samaritans provide a presence at 'food drops' near Holborn in central London. The food drops are where volunteers deliver food and other supplies to communities who need them. Jim from our team goes out with the Samaritans when there is a big pile of hats to donate and hands them out.
The Samaritans offer emotional support and a regular presence to one of the most high risk populations in our city. Although many charities provide food and blankets, the Samaritans offer the chance for people to be heard. They not only provide support for the homeless but also to anyone experiencing feelings of distress or despair - 24 hours a day.
