Children and Young People
Do you need to talk to someone?
If you need to talk to someone about something that has happened to you you should always speak to a trusted adult. Talking about a problem can often make you feel better and you shouldn’t feel embarrassed, shy or ashamed. If you have been the victim of online grooming, or sexual abuse, there are people who can help.
It’s a good idea to talk to someone that you trust like a parent, carer, family member or teacher.
If you would like to talk to someone in confidence you can contact Childline – You can call them free on 0800 1111 and this number won’t appear on a telephone bill. The number is available 24 hours a day.
