Helplines for Kids & Parents
Sometimes a child might not want to turn to one of their trusted adults when they need help with an issue in the online and/or offline world. That's why we recommend ensuring they have the contact info for an alternative, confidential source. Some of these organisations provide help and support for parents, teachers and communities too.
