Get support

You can contact Childline about anything. Whatever your worry, it's better out than in. We're here to support you and help you find ways to cope.

There are lots of different ways to get in touch with us. And you can also get help from other young people through our site.

Important update:
Because of the coronavirus, we’ve had to make some changes to how Childline works. For now, you can only speak to a Childline counsellor online or on the phone from 9am – midnight.

Talk to other young people

Talk on the message boards safely and anonymously, or read what other young people have posted.

You can talk about all sorts of things on the boards. You could say what’s worrying you, offer support, or just share something that makes you feel good.

Write to Ask Sam

Sam answers letters from young people like you every week. Whatever your worry, there’s probably a letter for you.

Anyone can write to Sam, you don’t need to sign up or tell us your name. Sam reads every letter you send, and chooses a few each week to answer on the website.
