Gibraltar Samaritans
You Got A Friend


COMPANY OVERVIEW
The Gibraltar Samaritans
We have identified the need for a Helpline to be established in Gibraltar on the same lines as found in most other countries.
It is important for people to have the opportunity to explore difficult feelings. Being listened to in confidence, and being accepted without prejudice, without being judged, can alleviate general distress, despair and suicidal feelings.
Often being listened to is enough to help someone through a time of distress. Even just showing that you are there for them, and that you know they are going through a distressing time, can in itself be a comfort.
For people who are lonely, despairing and possibly even considering suicide, the helpline is often the last hope –a place where they can talk in complete confidence about their deepest fears and darkest secrets.
Suffering from an emotional crisis not only affects the person concerned, it can have a ripple effect on the families who are then also in need of emotional support.
Samaritans are trained volunteers who are there to listen; you can talk to us any time you like, in your own way, and off the record – about whatever’s getting to you. You do not have to give your name, neither does the listener; your call is anonymous and completely confidential; it cannot be traced back to you.
The most common problems people contact the Samaritans for are:
• relationship and family problems
• domestic abuse
• loss, including loss of a friend or a family member through bereavement
• stress of coping with elderly relatives
• financial worries
• job-related stress
• college or study-related stress
• bullying
• loneliness and isolation
• sexual orientation
• depression
• self-harming
• painful and/or disabling physical illness
• heavy use of or dependency on alcohol or other drugs
• gambling or other addiction
• thoughts of suicide
Unfortunately, no such Helpline service is established in Gibraltar and is sorely needed.
We have contacted the Samaritans in UK and also Befrienders Worldwide, the umbrella organisation, and both are keen to help us establish this service in Gibraltar. They are advising us on the set-up so we meet their standards and have already given us provisional membership of Befrienders Worldwide. Samaritans will be providing us with all the training required for our volunteers to run the service.
As with all similar services worldwide, Gibraltar Samaritans will be established as a charitable organisation, run by volunteers and funded by public donations.
We have, so far, acquired assistance from the Government which has given as an office from which we can operate.
The Regulatory Authority has already approved the allocation of the Pan-European Freephone number 116123 allocated to similar Helplines throughout Europe.
As mentioned before, The Gibraltar Samaritans will be run by volunteers. Before we can get the service up and running, we need to recruit people to help us run the Charity.
1. Listeners to man the Helplines.
We will be holding an Information Hour for volunteers on Saturday 13th May at 10:00 am. Maggie Galliano, the Director of Central London Samaritan office, the biggest in UK, will be coming to Gibraltar for this.
Volunteers will then be trained by our local trainers over the following weeks.
2. Volunteers to help with fundraising, office and other requirements.
It is important that the service runs efficiently on a day to day practical level, we raise funds to run it, promote it etc., so the volunteer listeners are able to do their part in manning the Freephone lines.
Anyone wishing to volunteer their services to this worthy cause please contact:

CHARITIES , BOOK SHOPS

COMPANY OVERVIEW
The Gibraltar Heritage Trust is a non-profit charity established by statute on 1 May 1989 to preserve and promote the cultural natural heritage of the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar.
The Trust collaborates with the Government of Gibraltar and with private organisations and individuals to preserve and promote Gibraltar's heritage for cultural, educational and tourism purposes. The Trust is funded through fees from exhibitions, a portion of ticket sales for access to listed properties managed by the Gibraltar Tourist Board and from donations. Although the Gibraltar Museum is owned and operated by the government, the Trust has an advisory role and assists in expanding the collection.
The Trust maintains a list of historically important buildings and structures, and gives advice on their preservation and restoration. With Gibraltar's long history as a garrison town and naval base, most of the listed structures are military, including defensive walls, bastions and batteries. However, the Trust also covers natural attractions and civilian structures such as caves and churches.
Some of the tourist sites for which the Trust coordinates conservation and development lie on the high slopes of The Rock in the Upper Rock Nature Reserve. These include O'Hara's Battery, the 100 ton gun at Napier of Magdala Battery, the Military Heritage Centre at Princess Caroline's Battery and the Parson's Lodge Battery. In the late 1990s the trust arranged for the restoration of Parson's Lodge Battery, which in 1884 had three 10 inches (250 mm) muzzled loading rifled guns. The Trust operates the coastal fort, which is open to the public, with examples of artillery from different periods.
