The Samaritans Foundation

stablished on October 14, 1984 to assist in the expansion of the social and community services work of the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle, the Samaritans Foundation (formerly a function of the Newcastle Anglican Board of Social Work) has been carrying out vital community support via an ever expanding number of services across the Hunter Region, Mid-North Coast, Newcastle and Central Coast for over 30 years. With a vision that embraces reconciliation, dignity and inclusion for all people in our community we seek to promote social justice. Our core values of Compassion, Integrity and Justice underpin all that lies behind our work.

From the early days in 1984 the Samaritans Foundation now has over 600 staff and more than 400 volunteers across the regions. Samaritans work began as a few key services including emergency relief, a family centre and op shops. As an organisation we grew significantly since the early 1980s, and now operate over 100 support services. In 2012 our work spread to Mudgee in the Central Western NSW.

Throughout these regions we offer support to a number of those in need including young people and families, those with disability or mental health challenges and the wider community.
