ParentLine Scotland is a free helpline and email service for anyone with a concern about a child.
Get in touch
Call the free helpline on 0800 028 22 33 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Launched in 1999, ParentLine Scotland receives over 5,000 calls and emails every year. People call for all sorts of reasons including difficult relationships with teenagers, separation and divorce, bullying, family relationships, kinship care concerns, money, postnatal depression and child abuse for example, but they also call for lots of other reasons too. There really is no problem too big or small.
They get calls from parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, neighbours and friends who all want the same thing – to try and make things better. Many callers get in touch when they are at the end of their tether and feel like they can’t cope anymore. Sometimes callers are embarrassed about asking for help but they soon find that just talking things through can really make a difference.
