Help for Children

If you are a child looking for help and confidential advice or just support.

ChildLine is there for you.

You can talk to ChildLine on the phone on 0800 1111 and online on 1-2-1 chat any time that you want to.  There are times though when we get very busy and it might take a while for you to get through.

An average phone call can be approximately 30 minutes. It's usually less than this, but might be more depending on what help you need.  A 1-2-1 online chat usually lasts around 40 minutes. We have asked young people who use the service about this, and they have told us that this should be long enough for us to explore what is worrying you, but also allow other young people the chance to talk to us too. You are of course welcome to come back any time that you need to.
