New stretch target

Our aim is to offer our Online 6 week Let's Stop Shouting Program to over 500,000 individual's by training 500 counsellors to deliver our program. 

We will be using the money to create further resources and recruit counsellors to deliver our program. 

                     Our Lets Stop Shouting Campaign


Dear Friends, 

We are hoping to raise over £5,000 to go towards training 500 counsellors to deliver our 6 week ‘Let’s Stop Shouting’ therapeutic programme which will reach over 500,000 individuals. This programme will be delivered through Watoto Play’s new online creative therapy platform, My CC Toolkit. Our long term aim is to secure funding for counsellors to deliver this program (so yes we have a stretch target).

Our nationally focussed "Let’s Stop Shouting Awareness Day" will take place on Saturday November 6th 2021. But throughout March 2021 during our four-week Crowdfunding campaign we will be raising awareness of "How it starts with a shout". 

Our awareness day will belong to our start up, the Let's Stop Shouting Community Interest Company which we are in the process of forming.

What’s the program about?

The ‘Let’s Stop Shouting’ 6 Week programme will offer support strategies on how to listen more effectively and how to have passionate conversations without resorting to anger or violence. We will share ways to improve communication, processing of uncomfortable emotions, de-escalation and conflict resolution skills. In turn we hope the project will have a considerable impact on reducing levels of both emotional and physical abuse.

Why is this important?

This campaign is incredibly important especially as we start to come to terms with the mental health costs of the pandemic and lockdown. We want to raise awareness - without shame or blame around the impact shouting has on our relationships but also our physical health and wellbeing. Our ‘Let’s Stop Shouting’ campaign is about embracing similarities and differences, as well as increasing the awareness of the human in all of us.  It will offer tools and strategies to help take the heat out of tense, frustrating situations and support those wanting to build stronger, healthier, calmer relationships with family, friends, neighbours or in the workplace.


What can you do?

We can’t do this on our own, we need your help to spread our message far and wide. If you can support us - your pledge could help deliver mental health resources, courses and sessions to potentially thousands of people. We have a number of rewards to support the campaign that we hope you’ll like. 

If you can't pledge right now that’s okay, there are plenty of other ways you can help to support us such as: 

Download our digital social media pack & share them on your social media channels, it really helps us to let others know that we are Crowdfunding and you can do this by clicking here.
