The Government are supporting the NSPCC

The Government are supporting the NSPCC in maintaining the advice an support that they give to people. The Government and The NSPCC are putting out the following key message:

Home isn’t always a safe place. Schools closing could put some children at greater risk of abuse and neglect and that’s why we’re supporting the NSPCC. If you’re worried about a child or young person, or if you notice that something just doesn’t seem right, the @NSPCC is here. You can talk to their helpline team who offer free support and guidance on 0808 800 5000 (8am-10pm Mon-Fri / 9am-6pm weekends) or you can email help@nspcc.org.uk 24/7.

Now that we’re in lockdown, sadly home is more dangerous than ever for some children. That’s why we’re supporting the @NSPCC who are still here if you need advice or support, or you’re worried

It is free and confidential to text the service from the following major networks:

EE, O2, Three and Vodafone.

These include – BT Mobile, Tesco Mobile, Virgin Mobile, iD Mobile, Sky, Telecom Plus, Lebara and  GiffGaff. Some Android phones issue a warning that you will be charged for texting us, provided you are on one of these networks this warning is incorrect and you will not be charged. If you text YoungMinds from a  network that is not on this list there is a possibility that you may be charged for the messages and  that they may appear on your bill, this is because some networks do not provide the capability to  message short codes.
