Answer

Hey there, thanks you for reaching out to us.
 
We’re really sorry to hear that things are tough for you right now. It takes a lot of strength to share what you’re going through, and we want you to know that you’re not alone. It’s okay to feel scared, especially when reaching out for help. We are here to listen and support you.
 
Calling Childline is a brave step, and it’s completely understandable that you might be afraid of what could happen next. Your well-being is important, and you deserve to be in a safe and supportive environment. It might be helpful to consider talking to someone you trust about your concerns, like a teacher, counsellor, or another family member. They can provide additional guidance and support as you go through these difficult feelings.
 
Remember, you have the right to feel safe and respected. If you’re comfortable, you could also try calling Childline again and expressing your concerns about the possible consequences of reaching out. We are here to help, and we want to make sure you’re in a safe and healthy home. Maybe chatting online could be a better option for you, just click on the Live Chat tab on our website to start a chat. This article explains what happens when you either phone or web chat with us www.childline.ie/what-happens-when-i-get-in-touch-with-childline-listening/.
 
If you ever feel unsafe at home, you can call the Gardaí for help at 999 or 112. Their job is to make sure you are living in a safe home. Also, the social workers in Túsla (the child and family agency in Ireland) are there for the same reason. Here are some of the services Túsla provide for families and children www.tusla.ie/services/
 
Remember, you’re not alone at this time and you deserve support as you go through your challenges. Please get in touch with us again, there will be somebody waiting to take your call or chat.
