What if it's happening to a friend?

If you are in immediate danger - call 999 now.

If you would like to talk to someone, call Childline on 0800 1111.

I listened to what was happening to my friend and was able to tell him about this website. I didn't really think it would help, but he told me he wouldn't have known what to do if I hadn't been around to help out.

If your friend tells you that they are being hurt at home, or if someone they live with is being hurt, you may feel it's hard to know what to do for the best. You could tell them about this website, tell them to talk to and adult they trust (such as a teacher) or, if you want to, give them the number for Childline (which is 0800 1111) where they can talk to someone about any of their problems.

If your friend tells you about being hurt at home, you may find yourself feeling frightened for them or upset at the thought of what is happening to them. You may feel really worried about them and want to stop them from getting hurt, but it's important to remember that you shouldn't try and sort it out yourself. If you are feeling very upset you may feel you want to telephone Childline (on 0800 1111), so you can talk to someone about how you feel.
