About 'Text About It' by spunout

'Text About It' provides a safe space where you’re listened to by a trained Volunteer. You’ll text back and forth, only sharing what you feel comfortable with. By asking questions, listening to you and responding with support, they will help you sort through your feelings until you both feel you are now in a calm, safe place. Text About It is free, anonymous and available 24/7.

Life can be hard sometimes; we can feel unsure or even unsafe. We can find ourselves a little lost, nervous or worried, not knowing where or who to turn to next. We can all feel lonely at times too, alone with no one to talk to or in a crowd with no one to relate to. Text About It is there for everyone as they travel their own unique journey. We are here for you if you just need a helping hand or if you’re lost, low or lonely. Together we can drive away the clouds, lighten the load and find a clear path ahead. If it matters to you, it matters to us. You can connect with us across our technology-empowered platforms. You can share what’s on your mind. With Text About It, you can take a step to make your life a little better.

'Text About It' is a safe space to share anonymously, we take your privacy very seriously. Our volunteers only know what you share with them via text and nothing else.

We are here for you every hour of every day. From calming chats to immediate support – if it matters to you, it matters to us. 'Text About It' is here for you 24/7.
