We're proud to partner with Shout to offer free and confidential support round the clock to anyone who needs help.
Text comfort to 85258
Simply text the word COMFORT to 85258 to be connected to a trained volunteer who can help with anything you're struggling with, including anxiety, stress, loneliness or depression.
What is Shout
Shout is a free, confidential and 24/7 text support service for anyone in the UK who is struggling to cope.
How it works
To start a conversation, text (please don’t WhatsApp) the word COMFORT to 85258. After you send the first message, you’ll receive four automated text messages before you connect to a trained Shout Volunteer.
The volunteer will introduce themselves and ask you to share a bit more about what’s worrying you. The volunteer will listen and talk with you silently, via text message. You only need to share what you feel comfortable sharing.
As well as listening without judgement, our volunteers may provide you with further resources or tools to help you get more expert support. Your conversation will only end when the volunteer is sure you are calm and feeling better.
