Tipton group with Samaritans

Wednesday, 16 June 2021


To date, we have collaboratively developed some aims of the group, chief amongst which was the development of a ‘hyperlocalised’ signposting list, together with accessing some training. 

To this end, the local branch of Samaritans have agreed to deliver 2 (identical) sessions next week.

The presentations shall be delivered by volunteers from the Brierley Hill branch of Samaritans and should last around 45 minutes. They will include the following:

• Who Samaritans are and what they do

• Some statistics about their service, particularly over the last year

• How Samaritans Listen – Tips on how to be a good listener

• How to open up a conversation

• How you can help As discussed, it would be great if you were able to help advertise these sessions within Tipton.

They are being delivered Microsoft Teams on Tuesday 22nd June at 7pm Click here to join the meeting , and Wednesday 23rd June at 2pm Click here to join the meeting

However, given the level of objection to the site investigations, and listening to the voices of ward members and residents I have agreed, as part of my commitment to protect Sandwell’s green spaces and build a cleaner, greener, safer borough, that we will not be progressing with plans for new housing on Goldicroft Park.”
