Kidsline is a near-peer telephone counselling service, aimed at children and young people up to 18 years of age. Kidsline has been operating since June 1988.

Kidsline Buddies are trained teenage telephone counsellors, supervised and supported by Kidsline management as part of Lifeline Aotearoa.

Kidsline doesn't offer advice, or tell children what to do. Instead, Kidsline Buddies listen and understand a child's situation, and help them to identify their own resources and options to help things change.

Kidsline receives calls covering a number of issues, and if you think your child might benefit from talking to someone, then please encourage them to call us - it really does help to talk.

If you're worried about your child and any unusual behaviour they may be displaying, click here for some general tips and suggestions on how to work through it together.

Or you have any further questions, see out 'contact' or 'got questions' section.
