I need to get out

Your Question

Please get me out of my current situation


Hi, thank you for reaching out to us,  

You are very brave to get in touch with us, we know it is not always easy to do. 

You say you want out of your current situation. This sounds like a very difficult situation that you may be in. We are worried for you that you are in a situation where you may not be safe. 

Feeling unsafe or wanting to get out a situation can be a very hard thing to go through.  You do not have to be alone with these thoughts. At any moment you feel you are not safe; you have the right to phone the Gardaí on 999 or 112.   

You can also get in touch Túsla which is made up of social workers and people whose job it is to help make sure that every young person is safe. You can contact your local Túsla office here , but you may need the help of a trusted adult. Do you have one good adult in your life that you can talk to about this and get the support you deserve? Perhaps a coach, youth worker, teacher or family member.  

If you are in a situation where you would prefer someone else to phone emergency services or Túsla for you, Childline is always here to make that call on your behalf. You can get in touch with us for a chat first, and we can go through some options that may be available to you. We are completely confidential. You can free phone us at 1800 66 66 66, or chat online through (just click on the orange Live Chat button and send ‘hi’ or ‘hello’) Childline is open 24 hours every day. There is always somebody here to chat with you, day or night. It is a safe space for you to talk about what is going on for you.

We would be more than happy to hear from you soon, take care of yourself,
