ChildLine is the UK's free helpline for children and young people in trouble or danger. It provides a confidential telephone counselling service for any child with any problem, 24 hours a day, every day. It comforts, advises and protects.

Where a child is in danger, ChildLine works with other helping agencies to ensure the child's protection. ChildLine also brings to public attention issues affecting children's welfare and rights.
