About the Helpline
Your call will be answered by one of our specially trained women volunteers who are there to listen and support you to talk about whatever is on your mind.
We are here to listen to you and believe you 100%. We will never judge or doubt you.
We are here to help you explore your thoughts, feelings and what options you might have. We can give you information about those options, but we will never tell you what you should do.
If calling our 0808 801 0456 or 0808 801 0464 numbers, your call will be free and they will not appear on your phone bill.
Out of hours/Can’t get through
If you call outside the helpline hours you will reach a message explaining when the helpline is next open. If you call out of hous or cannot get through in hours we have a 24 hour answer machine, you can leave your details if you wish to be called back when the helpline is next open. Please only leave a number if it is safe to do so.
