Who are the Listeners?

Listeners are there to listen and befriend the despairing by volunteering an average of 4-6 hours per week, with one overnight per month. They remain anonymous, but can also take action to save a life with the permission of the despairing.

Listeners must engage in the Listener Preparation Programme. It is an activity that takes about 3-months to complete and has two stages. The initial period is done on weekends – Friday Evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays full day sessions. Following the completion of the initial preparation, volunteers can become Helpers who support the Listeners by volunteering 4-6 hours per week with one overnight per month.
