After 17 years, the Youth2Youth helpline closes this week.
Monday 23 September will be the last helpline night.
Thousands of vulnerable callers have been helped through some
very difficult times - lives have been saved.
Whilst this is a significant chapter in the life of Youth2Youth,
impacting on so many incredible helpline volunteers, there is good
news on the horizon.
From 2014 a national charity will be taking over the
project. They aim to develop and extend the helpline to
offer volunteer opportunities across the country.
A press release will follow in the coming weeks.
Kidscape is a national anti-bullying charity that believes all
children should be able to grow up in a world free from bullying
and abuse, and that all adults should keep children safe and help
them to reach their full potential. By providing training, support
and advice to children, parents, schools and those in professional
contact with young people, Kidscape enables them to gain the skills
and confidence to challenge bullying in all its forms.
