Shout is a free, confidential, 24/7 text support service for anyone in the UK who is struggling to cope.

Powered by a community of around 2,000 volunteers, Shout has taken more than 1.5 million conversations with people who are anxious, stressed, depressed or suicidal and who need urgent, in-the-moment support.

Shout Volunteers are at the heart of everything Shout does. Every day, they take life-saving text conversations with children, young people and adults in distress. 

Time commitment

Shout Volunteers are asked to commit to 25 hours of online training and 200 total hours of volunteering, taken in one to two shifts a week. Shifts are two hours long and taken via our digital mental health platform.

As a 24/7 services, volunteers are required around the clock, so you can volunteer flexibly at times that suit you.
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
This is an online volunteering role.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
