We're here for you
Living in care means living away from your parents. This might be with other family members, with a foster family, in a care home or some other kind of residential place. Young people who live in care have professionals around them to support them, like a social worker.
Social workers are there to support young people and help keep them safe. They might work closely with other people in their life to do this, like a teacher or foster parent.
Even if you have other people in your life, Childline is here for you. We offer all young people the same emotional support.
- You can choose how much you want to say
- We will listen without judgement
- We will keep what you tell us confidential
‘Confidential’ means keeping what you say private and only passing on what you tell us if we need to get help to you urgently. If you or someone else is in serious danger we will try and help you find ways to be safer, but if you need more support to manage that serious danger, we will try and arrange to get emergency help to you.
