Are you a child or young person who is scared or worried about something that is happening to you?

If you are a child or young person who is being hurt it is important that you talk to someone you trust and get support and help for what is happening. You may feel frightened, confused, angry and may feel you are to blame in some way for what is happening.

You may feel that nobody will believe you but you will find that there are people who are willing to listen, to give you support and help and who will believe you.

Talk to your parents - if for any reason you feel you cannot do this then think about who you could talk to - perhaps a teacher at school, a youth worker, a family member, a friend, a helpline.

You can talk to someone at Childline or visit their website:


Telephone:0800 11 11


You can contact a Social Worker:

Telephone:+44 1624 686179

Email:Send Email

If telephoning, you will hear a recorded message and then press button 2.

Emails are only looked at during office hours so if you need more urgent support you should contact an adult you trust and ask them to help you. 

Alternatively, send a text message to +44 7624 365298. Please give your name and the way you would like us to contact you. This text message will only be looked at during office hours so if it is outside office hours, including at the weekend then it would be best if you contacted another person who will be able to find a way of helping you if you need some urgent help.
