During William’s visit, he revealed plans to train as a volunteer counsellor for the text crisis service Shout. William spoke of his ambition as Shout announced a partnership with emergency services organisations that will connect “bluelight” staff and their families to the support they need. Chatting to volunteers from the service, which was developed by the Royal Foundation, he said: “I’m aiming to set myself up for it, I really want to do it. Even if I can only do an hour on my laptop. I want to do the training and be able to help.”
Members of the emergency services community can text BLUELIGHT to 85258 to start a conversation with a trained volunteer at Shout, which was developed with the Royal Foundation as a legacy of the Heads Together Campaign.
