Youth2Youth (Y2Y) is a unique helpline service. The reason it is unique is that the helpline is run by young people for young people.
You can help by making a donation – however small. We need more money to train more volunteers
Many young people find it difficult to talk to adults; some do not trust them and often young people feel older people just do not understand. Considering the difficulties some young people face when talking to adults there are very few opportunities to contact alternative services. Here at Y2Y we provide that alternative. Our helpline staff are all young people themselves who have been specially trained to help.
The helpline is for any young person under the age of 19 years who feel they need emotional support. Young people who are worried, confused or just need to talk can contact our trained volunteers by telephone, email or on-line chat. Whichever way they choose to contact Y2Y they can be assured that their call will be treated confidentially and a young person will be there to give them the support and help they need.
