I'm Sam Carvalho and The Stand Up Stay Strong project was an idea of mine in September 2012. I jotted the details down on a notebook, mades notes and read guidelines online on running a support website. Shortly after I created the website.
Stand Up Stay Strong is a free and easy 1-2-1 support site. It provides you with the option to unload your problems without having to disclose who you are, your age or email. These factors apply all the time but it is your choice whether you want to disclose any information. Everything is confidential and privacy always respected but if we feel that somebody is at risk, the local authorities may be notified
This site does not ask for donations. We display advertisements to raise money and all of the money raised from the advertisements go to charity. This is a non-profit project. Many people offer me donations but I do not accept donations, but please feel free to donate any money you wanted to donate to me to a charity instead.
A special thank you to Kieran Eves who designed this whole website and is hosting it all for free. You can thank him personally on Twitter at @KieranPersonal
