Become a Crisis Volunteer with Shout

Place2Be is supporting Shout – the UK’s first free 24/7 text service for anyone in crisis anytime, anywhere. Shout is powered by a team of Crisis Volunteers who take people from crisis to calm every single day. 




Shout's Crisis Volunteers apply, get trained and work online – it can all be accessed remotely. They pick the hours they want to do each week.
