If you need someone to listen
If you need support or someone to talk to, don’t suffer in silence. There are always people available to help.
The Samaritans offer a free 24-hour listening service on 116 123 where they will listen, be non-judgemental and help you work through what’s on your mind.
The Bournemouth branch is also available for face-to-face sessions from 9am to 9pm at:
1 Durrant Road

About YMCA Bournemouth
We work across five key areas – Housing & Support, Family & Relationships, Youth Work, Training & Education, and Health & Wellbeing – to enable people in our local community to develop their full potential in mind, body and spirit.
On the parable of the Good Samaritan:
”I imagine that the first question the priest and Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But by the very nature of his concern, the good Samaritan reversed the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?'”
