Here in Childline we try to empower, support, and protect young people like you. Our services are all free and confidential.  We don’t trace calls or texts and your IP address is not visible. Children and teenagers talk to us about a lot of different things. You don’t have to have a problem to contact us. We don’t give out to you or tell you what to do. We help you figure out your own solutions and we’re here to listen.

Some other things we do in Childline are:
  • We go to schools and clubs and give talks – If your school is interested, please have a look at our Outreach information
  • We work hard to answer all the phone calls, texts and online contacts from children and young people.
  • We sometimes talk to adults who are concerned about children
  • We campaign for children's rights
