Ask Sam

Ready to answer your questions




I’ve been trained to listen to and support young people so that they can talk about anything that is worrying them, no matter how big or small.

Work History:

ChildLine – the free and confidential helpline and online service for children and young people in the UK

What I do now:

Answer questions and give advice and support to young people. You can call ChildLine on 0800 1111 or visit to talk to a counsellor in confidence, explore our great website and share experiences and get support from other young people on the message boards.
