Who is the service for?

How can you Help?

Our team can offer emotional support, advice and signposting. You can call as many times as you like. The Advisor will listen and help you to find a way forward. Our team will make any onward referrals if you want us to do that. 

What if I do not speak English?

Our team of Advisors speak lots of different languages, and we will match you with an Advisor who speaks your language. If we are not able to do this we will arrange for a call back or for you to speak with us through an interpreter.

Can I refer a young person?

Yes, You can refer the young person by calling our Helpline and speaking with an Advisor or by completing our professional referral form

Do you provide counselling?

Our Advisors can provide emotional support but are not therapists. We are hoping to be able to offer referrals for counselling support in the near future.

Are calls confidential?

Calls are confidential between you and the Advisor, unless we believe that your life is at risk or the life of another young person is at risk.
