Counselling Helpline

24-hour counselling helpline

We all need a little extra support at times. That’s why we offer a round-the-clock confidential counselling helpline that is delivered by a team of clinically trained and qualified experts who are BACP accredited – British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Offering a confidential*, professional telephone counselling service can help foster families proactively manage stress and help overcome emotional issues, by providing immediate emotional support, advice and practical information, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Counselling must be confidential, appropriate and available at the right time to have a positive effect, and that’s where we make a difference. And if members need further support, we’ll signpost and help you to know how and where to find it.

All members of the fostering household can phone FosterTalk’s counselling helpline, where the frequency and duration of all calls is unlimited. Members can call about any matter whether or not it’s related to fostering.  Please login for access.



*All contact with FosterTalk is treated with the strictest of confidence unless there are serious concerns of a safeguarding nature.
