Childline offer a free Helpline Service, where children and young people can contact us every day of the year.

You can contact Childline about anything. Whatever your worry, it’s better out than in. We’re here to support you.

There are lots of different ways to speak to a Childline Listener or get support from other young people.

Confidentiality

Our service is completely confidential unless you or another person are in danger or at risk of harm.

All contacts are received by specially trained Childline Listeners:

  • Who care about you
  • Who will believe you
  • Who will understand it takes a lot of courage to contact us
  • Who you can trust
  • Who will not judge you
  • Who respects confidentiality – you do not need to give us your name or any details about yourself if you don’t want to.
