Holiday period - 20/12/14 − 01/01/15

From 20 December to 1 January 2015 our online forums will remain open but will not be moderated by Gingerbread staff.

If you are in crisis please reach out to family and friends, speak to your GP or if you feel in imminent danger of taking your own life dial 999 or go to your nearest Accident and Emergency department (A&E).

If you are struggling or finding it hard to cope you might find it helpful to speak to someone who is trained to listen. The Samaritans helpline is available 24 hours a day: call 08457 90 90 90 or email jo@samaritans.org

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child please call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000, or the police.

We provide expert advice, practical support and campaign for single parents
