ChildLine is the UK's free, 24-hour helpline for children in distress or danger. Trained volunteer counsellors comfort, advise and protect children and young people who may feel they have nowhere else to turn.
If you are a child or young person needing help please call their free 24-hour helpline on 0800 1111. Lines can be busy but please keep trying and you will get through.
If you are deaf or find using a regular phone difficult, try their Textphone service which provides confidential support and advice via a textphone. You can call on 0800 400 222 and it's open from 9.30am to 9.30pm on weekdays and 9.30am to 8pm at weekends.
They also provide a special helpline called The Line for any young person living away from home. This is the helpline for you if you live in a foster home or a children's home, if you're at boarding school or you've been in hospital for a long time. You can call The Line on 0800 88 44 44 from 3.30pm to 9.30pm on weekdays and 2pm to 8pm at weekends.
