We team up with Leyton Orient and Harry Kane
Shout will feature on the front of Leyton Orient’s home shirts for the 2022/23 season, thanks to a special sponsorship partnership with Harry Kane.
The partnership will raise mental health awareness with new audiences, particularly men, and 10% of the proceeds from the sale of each shirt will also come to Shout.
Join our next fundraising challenge!
Sign up to walk 310,000 steps in July and raise money for our life-saving text support service.
Could you volunteer for Shout?
Shout Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do. They're often the first person our texters have ever spoken to about how they are feeling.
As a Volunteer, you work to take someone in distress to a calmer place. In return, you get 25 hours of free mental health communication training and ongoing dedicated coaching to help others while developing skills for life.
You really made a difference for me tonight and I can’t thank you enough. I feel stronger to face the future.Shout texter feedback
Feeling anxious, stressed overwhelmed or in need of support? Shout 85258 is the UK's first free, confidential, 24/7 text support service. It's anonymous and won't appear on your bill.
