We want to speak to children and young people, directly over the phone; to listen to you, understand your situation and make a plan with you about how we can help. 

Call 0800 157 7015 to speak to one of our Barnardo’s project workers

We operate between Monday – Friday 9am – 9pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am – 6pm 

Childline is available for any child or young person to speak to, between 9am and Midnight every day and you can find out more.

Remember, if you or anyone else is in danger, it is always ok to call 999.

What you should know:

  • We only work in England but Childline works throughout the UK
  • Our phone number is free, you won’t have to pay to contact us or to access the support offered.
  • Your phone call will be answered by one of our Barnardo’s project workers who are experienced in working with children, and young people from all walks of life. They will not judge you or blame you whatever you are going through. 
  • Everyone has the right to be safe. If we become worried about the safety of anyone we will share information with other organisations to ensure they are protected from harm. This is our legal duty. We will always try to work with you to agree a plan together to maximise your safety and welfare. 
  • With your agreement we may share your information with other organisations who will help you as part of this service
