You can tell us as much or as little as you want to. Sometimes we will ask if you want to give a first name, but it’s up to you if you want to do this. 

Just because we do know your name, it doesn’t mean that we’d tell someone else about what’s happening to you, no matter how much we know about you. You can always make up a name if you don’t want to give us your real one. We’d ask you to use the same name if you do get in touch with us again so that we know it’s you. A copy of the chat is held by the charity and we will ask you at the end of the conversation if you would like us to delete it.

  • you ask us to
  • we believe your life or someone else’s life is in danger
  • you’re being hurt by someone in a position of trust who is able to hurt other children like a teacher, religious leader, sports coach, police officer or doctor
  • you tell us that you’re seriously hurting another person.
  • you tell us about another person who’s being hurt and is not able to tell someone or understand what is happening to them
  • we’re told we have to by law, for example for a court case.
