Call, Chat online or Email US
We’ve been improving the way Childline works!
Childline has changed the technology we use to answer calls and chats. In the future it’ll help us to answer more calls, chats and emails. But it might take longer to get through while our counsellors get used to the new system.
Need support but can’t get through? Why not write a letter to Sam or post on the message boards. Find out more about why we’re doing this.
use British Sign Language?
If you are d(D)eaf or hard of hearing, you can get support from Childline in lots of ways.

get help from other young people on our message boards
You can talk to other people on the message boards and get support with all sorts of things like family worries, eating problems, self-harm, phobias, puberty, hobbies, and much more. Or you could just share poems, quotes and fun things.
write to sam
Anyone can write to Sam with their problem. You don't even need to sign up or tell us your name. It's completely anonymous. Just go to the Write a letter to Sam page on our site and start typing!
Sam writes back to a few letters each week. You can also read advice to other people who have similar problems to you.
