KU19 Text Service

Info:

The KU19 Text Service is a secure and confidential text messaging service for young people under 20.

You can text a KU19 Nurse on 07781 488019 (text service only) for advice and support on a range of issues including:

  • your emotional health
  • friendship and relationship advice
  • contraceptive / other sexual health advice
  • problems at home or at school

The textline is monitored Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, but you can text any time. We can only reply during our monitoring hours.

If you have free texts included in your mobile network allowance then it will not cost you to message the KU19 service. Costs of texts made outside of your allowance will be charged at your standard network rate.
