The ChildLine website is created around you. The website team want to know what you think so we can make the site better.

Help us improve our pages
At the bottom of most pages, you'll find a light blue box asking a question about the page you've just read. These boxes are a quick way to type in your feeback. Whenever we create new pages or improve our pages, we first read all of your feedback. This helps us make sure we are writing about things that you want to see.

Take part in events and online chats
We often have events where young people get involved by joining discussions, helping with activities and speaking to others. We also have our own online social networking site where young people are encouraged to take part in weekly chats. These chats give you the opportunity to help the work that the NSPCC and ChildLine do. If you are interested in taking part or finding out more, send an email to our Participation Unit at ParticipationUnit@NSPCC.org.uk

Take part in surveys
We often have surveys to find out more about what you think and to get your feedback on changes we make. Keep checking this page for new surveys.

Latest survey results and feedback:
- Your thoughts about emailing ChildLine
- Your thoughts about confidentiality
- Message board survey results

Check out our message boards


The message boards are the place to share information and experiences with other young people, and find out what they think. It is also a way of sharing feedback and ideas with ChildLine.

Max is the main host who you will see on the boards along with Lee, Lou and some other hosts. The hosts are there to help you use the boards. They make sure whatever you post is in the right place so it can be seen by others.

Post your comments on the Your Site, Your Say message board thread and Max-Host will pass them on to the website team.
