Your Question

What do u do if your naughbours are banging your walls and have been for ages

From Pat / 24 July 2019


Welcome to Ask Pat,

It sounds like your neighbours have been making noise which is affecting you. You also mention it has been happening for ages, it makes sense that this could be unpleasant for you. Whether it is causing you to feel stressed, angry, upset, unsure, or even scared about what is going on around you, you have the right to get help and support in coping with these feelings. You also have the right to feel safe and to be able to get adequate rest.

Do you have a trusted adult you can chat to about how the noise is impacting you? Sometimes it can help to chat to, for example, a parent, another family member or another adult that you feel comfortable talking to, about something you may all be experiencing.

If you don’t feel like you can chat to anyone, there is some information about feeling angry or stressed on the Childline website under ‘How I Feel’ then ‘Feelings and Emotions’.

If you would like to chat with us, Childline is here to listen to, and support you. You can call Childline on 1800 66 66 66 (24 hours a day), text Childline on 50101 (10am – 4am every day) or chat with Childline online on this site (10am – 4am every day).

Take care,
