“We never know who will be calling or what the problem may be. What we do know is that we try our best to help our callers not feel alone with their concerns. As a team we can receive support from each other and that’s one of the strengths of FamilyLine”
“When volunteering on the FamilyLine helpline, I experience first-hand the positive impact that our confidential support can have on callers. I would urge you to offer students and parents the opportunity to receive that support in times of difficulty by passing on our free helpline number (0808 800 5678). Thank you.”

FamilyLine leaflets were part of the induction pack for new families and also available in the reception area, to be accessed discreetly should a parent so wish. A few parents let me know that they had phoned and found the service valuable; one distressed father later told me that before contacting FamilyLine, he had never had the opportunity to talk at length about his complex situation, and that he had really appreciated the empathy of the helpline volunteer”.

“It was a pleasure meeting some of the volunteers and Tracy at this event – we have been giving out leaflets for the service to our clients as an outlet for them should they need it…I view the organisation highly and value what you do.”

Speaking with your capable team was a wonderful opportunity to ask questions of the important work, beneficial effects and lasting legacy that FamilyLine provides weeks, months and years later for individuals, their families and the community in general.”
