Support Line

0808 801 0342

We think it is important that you have the opportunity to talk to someone who is not part of the Forum about what attending could mean for you. The Forum can put you in touch with an independent, dedicated support line. This is provided by Health in Mind and can be accessed by calling 0808 801 0342 at the following times:

Monday – 11:30am – 2pm

Tuesday – 5:30pm – 8pm

Wednesday – 11:30am – 2pm

Thursday – 5:30pm – 8pm

Friday – 11:30am – 2pm

Saturday – 3pm – 5:30pm

Sunday - Closed

We understand that coming to the Forum can be a big step to take.  It may be the first time that you have chosen to talk about your experiences of institutional child care. There may have been some distressing things that happened to you whilst in care that you would like to talk about, but could find it difficult to do so. You may be worried about the consequences of telling the Forum about your experiences.

The support line worker Rachel has an understanding of the concerns you may have about attending the Forum. She is there to discuss anything that you would like to raise and assist you in deciding what you would like to do.  This may include signposting you onto organisations that can provide you with any support that you feel you might need. The support worker can assist you to make a decision on whether the Forum is right for you now, in the future or at all. Find out more in our Support Line Leaflet.

After attending the Forum there may be some matters that have come to light that you would like to discuss and get further information on. The Forum's own support staff will be happy to assist but will also make you aware that the support line is available if you would like to discuss your experience and what the next steps for you could be.  

You can also access other services through our Support and Advice Directory.
