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 7:30am – midnight from Monday to Friday, or from 9am–midnight at weekends.

Watch: Talking to Childline
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.
