Childline is a counselling service for children and young people. You can contact Childline about anything – no problem is too big or too small. Some of the things that you might want to contact Childline about include: feeling lonely or unloved, worries about the future, problems at school, bullying, drugs, pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, physical or sexual abuse, running away, concerns about family/friends and crimes against you. Calls to Childline are confidential other than if they feel it’s an emergency (however they will talk to you about this first).


You can talk to a counsellor by phone (0800 11 11), one to one chat or by e-mail.

How to Access

Childline is open all the time, but you will need to register an online account before you can use the online chat and e-mail.
