Our Volunteers give their time freely and unconditionally to this helpline. We do not provide counselling services, mental-health or welfare advice and nor do we provide free legal advice relating to the merit of a particular case. We endeavour to remain impartial and, at the same time, offer practical advice to help you understand options open to you. We will do all we can to help you deal with the situation you are facing, to help you to understand your rights and give you the confidence to resolve matters yourself.


We find that some callers have high expectations when they call us. We may not be able to resolve your problem, but we will do all we can to help. If you are feeling angry or emotionally distressed at your personal circumstances at the time of your call, we would advise you to take a short break and call us when you feel calm. The conversation we have in that circumstance is likely to be far more productive. Avoid calling us while you are driving or walking. You may need to have pen and paper ready to take notes.


Please note: Our Volunteers will terminate a call where a caller is unreasonably abusive. Finally, we do not get involved in any disputes involving the Police, the NHS or a local Authority. Call Charges: 0845 calls are charged at circa 7p per minute plus your telecom providers access charges. We do not receive revenue from inbound calls and nor do we profit from calls.
