So many people say that “children are the future” without really knowing what this means. At Childline South Africa, we really take this sentiment to heart and try our hardest to ensure that your future is all that it should up.
Childline South Africa wants you to know what is right and wrong and we want you to know what you can do about it.
You may be going through a difficult time and are possibly feeling alone, confused and scared. If you are feeling like this then the best thing you can do for yourself is to talk to someone. Childline understands that sometimes the people you should be able to talk to are just not available or you feel scared to approach them. That is why we’ve set up a toll-free line. You can call us to talk through a problem or we can assist you should you have something to report.
The Childline toll-free Helpline is available 24 hours a day (we are free from all networks) and what you talk about is confidential. However if you want to say who you are and see a counsellor you can ask for this as well.
If you are ready to reach out and talk to a counsellor, call us on 116.
