Services

Childline

ChildLine offers a free, confidential 24-hour telephone and online counselling service for any child or young person with any problem.

Some of the things children phone about are:

  • bullying
  • concerns about parents, brother, sisters, friends
  • drugs and alcohol
  • feeling lonely or unloved
  • HIV and AIDS
  • neglect
  • physical abuse
  • pregnancy
  • running away
  • school problems
  • sexual abuse
  • worries about the future

When you phone ChildLine you can talk to someone called a counsellor who will listen to you and help you find ways of sorting out your problems and worries. If you want, the counsellor can put you in touch with other people who can also help you.

You don't have to give your name if you don't want to.

Whatever you say is just between you and the person you are talking to unless you want the counsellor to talk to somebody for you or you are in great danger.

In addition to the helpline, young people can also contact ChildLine online about their concerns via
