Family life today is complicated and Parentline Plus understands. We’re the leading national charity providing help and support to anyone caring for children – parents, grandparents, step-parents, relatives – for families living together as well as apart.
We get calls from parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, neighbours and friends who all want the same thing - to try and make things better. Many callers get in touch with us when they are at the end of their tether and feel like they can't cope anymore. Sometimes callers are embarrassed about asking for help but they soon find that just talking things through can really make a difference. If you have a problem, don't wait until you feel things get out of control.

familyline.org.ukIt is not unusual to feel you need help with a problem. Even with support from family or friends, you may feel they are just too close to help or understand you. Maybe you just don’t ever really feel heard. We provide help and emotional support by listening to all your family problems.

home-start.org.ukMany parents need help, friendship, advice or support during those early years when children are young. There is no rulebook for raising a family and sometimes it can seem overwhelming, particularly if your family is going through difficult times. Help is at hand. We support any family who needs us, as long as they have at least one child under five.
