It’s your call, we are here to listen and support you.
You might want to report something to us or you might want to discuss something with us – either way it’s on your terms.
We cannot trace your phone number or email address so we do not know who you are. You do not need to tell us your name or anything about yourself for us to still be able to listen. If you do want to report something or if you want us to give you some help we may ask you for your name and contact details, again it is up to you if you give it us.
If you decide not to let us help you but you have told us your details and we believe you are at risk of serious harm we may need to let someone know.
Your phone number cannot be seen by us and will not show on your bill.
We are a team of trained staff and volunteers here for you 24/7.
We won’t judge you or tell you what to do. We will listen to, understand and help you.
This service is provided by the charity helpline Missing People.
