Whether you are worried about something that's happened, your mental health or anything else in your life, you're not alone. There is always support available.

Talk to an adult you trust. This could be a parent or carer, a relative, someone at your football club or school.

Whatever's happening, you can also talk to Childline. Call for free on 0800 1111, start a 1-2-1 chat or send a message from your Childline account. Childline is free, confidential and here 24 hours a day.

When you contact Childline you’ll get through to a counsellor who’s there to help you. They’ll ask you questions about yourself and what’s happening, and can help you to think about new ways to cope or talk to people in your life.

Keeping safe

Everyone has the right to feel safe. Whether you’re at home, out with friends, at school or at your football club.

Nobody has the right to bully, abuse or hurt you. And it’s never okay for someone to pressure or force you to do something that hurts you or makes you feel upset or unsafe.
