Please note - this information is extracted from the Childline website

Childline is yours – a free, private and confidential service where you can be you. Whatever your worry, whenever you need help, however you want to get in touch. We're here for you online, on the phone, anytime

Some of the things that you might want to contact us about are feeling lonely or unloved, worries about the future, problems about school, bullying, drugs, pregnancy, HIV and AIDS, physical and sexual abuse, running away and concerns about parents, brothers, sisters and friends, and crimes against you.

Our counsellors are trained staff and volunteers. All sorts of people become Childline counsellors. They could be 16 or 60. They could be gay or straight –  or anywhere in between. They come from lots of different backgrounds and places.  

What they all have in common is they want to help young people. 

They're real people who want to support you with any issue you’re facing. They're trained but they don't follow a script. If you want to, you can ask them their name. 

A Childline counsellor:

  • will listen to you 
  • knows it takes courage to contact us
  • is genuine, open and friendly
  • knows about the problems young people can face
  • won't judge you or put you down
  • isn’t easily shocked
  • will let you take your time.

There are several different ways you can get in touch with us, which you can find out more about on our website

If you are an adult and are worried about a child, please contact the NSPCC Helpline.
