Working at Samaritans

For over 30 years, Samaritans has been providing unconditional support to many different groups of people. Samaritans core values of compassion, integrity and justice continue to be central to everything we do. Our services support people with a disability, young people, children, families, those escaping domestic violence, and those leaving prison, among others.

Our vision is to build communities where there is care for the vulnerable and where each individual has the opportunity to contribute and participate fully in community life. Behind this vision is a united team made up of over 700 staff members and 400 volunteers who work together throughout Newcastle, Hunter, Central Coast, Mid-Western and the Mid-North Coast regions of NSW.
