Calls to the helpline will not show up on landline phone bills.
All calls are confidential. If it is necessary to share information with other agencies, this would only be done with your full consent.

In these circumstances, the authorities would be informed to ensure the safety and well-being of you and your children.
The Live Fear Free Helpline has been awarded the nationally recognised quality standard which defines and accredits best practice in helpline work for the third time.
‘I have called the helpline when I’ve been alone at night, when I have just had to speak to someone about how much I hurt. They have helped to change my life.’
‘I’ve only been able to start to deal with all of the hurt in the last year or so. It started with a call to the helpline. I spoke to the helpline who helped me get in touch with my local services. She listened to me and she understood. She spent time with me and I felt able to be brave enough to tell her what had happened.’
‘Exceptional support-gives me a chance to be heard. I now have a voice.’
