The NSPCC run services for children, young people and their families throughout the UK. Children can contact them directly rather than be referred through another agency. This helpline never closes, day or night, someone is there to speak to you. Calls are free except from a mobile and you are never turned away.
The NSPCC provide counselling, information and advice to anyone concerned about a child. If you are a child or young person who needs help, an adult concerned that a child may be at risk of abuse or a parent, carer or relative who needs help and advice.
All counsellors are trained child protection officers with many years experience of dealing with families. This service is confidential. You don't have to give your name if you don't want to but remember that these are the people you can trust
