In an emergency you should always call 999. This includes if yours, or someone else’s life is at risk, or if a crime is in progress.
There are also a number of other organisations you can go to for help and support.
ChildLine is a free helpline for children and young people, and it’s private and confidential. This means that they won’t tell anyone else what you’ve said.
You can call them 24/7 on 0800 1111 – the number won’t appear on your phone bill.
You can also visit the ChildLine website to speak to a counsellor online.
Fearless provides information about lots of different things including cyber-crime, drugs and alcohol, and abuse. You can also give information online100% safely and anonymously.
The ThinkUKnow website has lots of advice and support for anyone of any age - whether you’ve just got a question you want to know the answer for, you just want to find out a bit more, or you know someone who is being sexually exploited.
