Samaritans Charity Visit WILSAR Training Evening

2 April 2014  |  News  |  , ,

2nd April 2014. Our recent training evening hosted a visit by speakers from the Samaritans charity. Our guests explained that people can talk with the Samaritans any time they like, in their own way, and off the record about whatever is getting to them. We found out more about the organisation and discussed what a despondent person might be going through and how best to approach and support them. WILSAR is often tasked to search for despondent missing persons and we thank the Samaritans for providing a very interesting and valuable training evening.

Samaritans is a registered charity supporting anyone in distress, around the clock, through 200 branches across the UK and Republic of Ireland. They are actively involved in local communities, reaching out and working with schools, colleges and universities, workplaces, health and welfare services, homeless shelters, prisons and other charities, and promoting awareness of their service at local social venues, community events and music festivals.
