1-2-1 Counsellor chat

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

On Monday 11 December between 3:30am - 7:30am, you won’t be able to contact Childline whilst we do some important maintenance to our systems. This means that 1-2-1 chats, calling and messages to Childline will be unavailable. You’ll still be able to use the Childline website for advice and information.

If you’re in danger or it’s an emergency, you should always call 999

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.
