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–3:30am.

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.

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.
