Telephone Support

For lots of boys and men, the telephone can be the first step in their healing. Picking up that phone, dialling the number and asking for help can be the most daunting and frightening thing ever. We know this because for some of us here, we remember doing that and for all of us we answer the phone every day. Our telephone helpline is there to provide those survivors in Greater Manchester with a friendly voice and listening ear. In the event of the helpline being engaged or if we’re unable to answer, we have a secure voicemail that you can leave a message with your contact details and we guarantee to return your call within one working week day.
