There are people who can help...

Many issues or problems may have caused you to find yourself in this situation.

We understand that it can be very complicated and there might not always be an easy solution. You may have relationship problems, financial worries, be suffering from domestic abuse, have mental health issues or drug or alcohol dependency which you’re struggling to cope with.

There could be one major issue that is making you want to leave home, or a series of problems which have maccumulated and left you feeling this way.

You can talk to us any time, night or day. 

Our 116 000 helpline is free from mobiles (even if you have no credit) landlines, and phone boxes.

If you’re not ready to talk, we have created a directory of organisations which specialise in helping people with some of the issues you might be facing.  You can either work your way through these pages by clicking the 'Next' button at the bottom of the page or click on the page title which is most relevant to you on the right hand side of this page to go directly to the information you need. Alternatively, you can download a PDF of this directory, to print and keep at home or on your computer.


We're not here to tell you what to do. We're here to help you find the resources you need to stay safe, and to support you through this difficult time."

- Shane, Helpline Supervisor
