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

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

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

Use the Childline Helper

The Childline Helper can make it easy to find the advice and support you need. Use it to:

  • get advice on anything that’s worrying you
  • find new ways to cope with feelings
  • learn more about the different ways Childline can help.
