We are incredibly grateful to our existing supporters which include The Royal Foundation of The Prince and Princess of Wales, whose generous founding grant launched the charity, philanthropic foundations and a growing number of corporate partners for helping us help others when they are in need of immediate support.

Our patron - Will Young

In 2023 we were delighted to announce musician, actor and mental health campaigner Will Young as our first ever patron.

“I’m so thrilled and excited to work with and represent Shout. The work Shout does in helping young people throughout the UK is astounding using a text message service. I have seen them in real time save lives and it is my honour to be a part of this incredible charity.”

Fabulous fundraisers

Over the last four years, hundreds of amazing supporters have raised significant amounts of money to help keep Shout running 24/7 for anyone who needs us. Here we celebrate just some of the individuals and businesses who have made such a difference.

Leo the Scout

14-year-old Scout Leo has raised an amazing £10,000 for Shout! In 2021 he challenged himself to sleep outside in his hammock through gales and snow for a whole year. In 2023 Leo, his mum and nan cycled 500 miles from his home in Kent to Edinburgh, battling tricky terrain, aching limbs and a snapped bike chain along the way.

“After finding the transition from primary school to secondary during Covid difficult, I wanted to fundraise for a mental health charity to support others who needed help too. I chose Shout because they communicate using text messages and thought people my age would find this easier.”

Shout Volunteer and Corporate Implementation Manager Nikki felt that Shout was the perfect charity for Agilio Software to support through their annual charity activity. 21 walkers undertook the UK 3 Peaks Challenge, for Shout, raising an incredible £25,000!

“We chose to take on the UK 3 Peaks for Shout because we wanted to do something truly challenging and meaningful and provide an opportunity for our team to spend time together.”


Lu & Chris

Lu and Chris took on the UK 3 Peaks for Shout after Shout supported Lu when she felt suicidal. Feeling she had exhausted all other avenues, she sent a text. A Shout Volunteer calmed Lu from her moment of crisis and helped her to get a plan in place to move forward. Lu and Chris shared the highs and lows of their fundraising challenge online and raised a brilliant £2,000.

“What better way to feel like you’re on the way to conquering your own mental health than climbing the UK’s three highest mountains?”
