1-2-1 chat isn’t available at the moment

Update from Childline

We're working a little differently because of coronavirus. You can speak to a counsellor every day by calling 0800 1111 from 7.30am - 3:30am on weekdays and 9am - 3.30am on weekends, but you can only start a 1-2-1 chat from:

  • 7.30am-10:30pm Monday to Friday
  • 9am - 10.30pm Saturday to Sunday

Important: If you’re in the queue for a chat but it’s after 3:30am, we won’t be able to answer your chat tonight.
