As government restrictions ease and the community adapts, Samaritans is also adapting our service delivery. You can still contact our services via phone, in some services we are organising video appointments, organising for supplies to be picked up safely and connecting you with what you need.

We want to confirm Samaritans' commitment to continuing providing support to people in our community, while ensuring everyone’s safety. We will continue to be guided within our response by NSW Health and Government officials and are adapting to the evolving situation each day.

Samaritans Central Office – Warabrook

Our door may be closed but we’re still open! to ensure the safety of our community we have adapted our service delivery and closed the doors to some of our buildings. We’re still here to support you. Our central office at Warabrook is operating differently so please contact our office on 1300 656 336 and we can direct you.
