North London Samaritans
North London Samaritans is one of over 200 branches in Britain and Ireland. For information about Samaritans generally, what we do and how we can help, please click here. The site you are now on is about Samaritans in North London, predominantly supporting the London Boroughs of Enfield, Haringey and Barnet.

Welcome to Shaftesbury Hall
Shaftesbury Hall has been owned by the North London Samaritans since 1974 and we are proud that the complete redevelopment of our 'Tin Tabernacle' finished in November 2018. Our vision has always been to create a new centre for Samaritans' volunteers and a true community facility for local groups to use and enjoy.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us along the journey to rebuild the hall, to our partners, those who have given their time and expertise to the project and above all to our wonderful volunteers and those who have donated so generously.
Shaftesbury Hall is now open for booking from £25/hour (£15/hour registered charities). Please check availability using our calendar, below, and contact us to enquire about placing a booking or for further information.
