How often can I call?

You can call how many times you want. If we receive calls for other issues and reasons that are other than those stated above, we will try and help you with support from other places.

What if I cannot reach you and it is an emergency?

We are a helpline but we are not an emergency number. If you are in an emergency situation, please reach out to emergency services like the police (100) & Childline (1098).

What should I do if the phone doesn’t connect?

We may be speaking to someone else and at such times it can be difficult to connect. Please take a moment to pause and try again. We will call back when we see the missed call. You may also consider leaving a whatsapp message or sms or email and we will get back to you.
