1-2-1 Counsellor chat

Chat with a counsellor online about whatever's worrying you.

Talking to Childline at night

Childline works a little differently overnight. You can still speak to a counsellor, but you might not be able to talk for a long as usual.Chat with a counsellor online about whatever's worrying you.

Wait time:

You might have to wait a while to get through to a counsellor, so if you need immediate help it's quicker to call us on 0800 1111. If you don’t need a reply right away, try sending a message to a counsellor instead.

You could also get support from the message boards or look at Ask Sam letters for advice.
