    0800 KIDSLINE (54 37 54)

    0800 KIDSLINE (0800 54 37 54) is New Zealand’s original telephone counselling service for all kids up to 18 years of age.

    Kidsline is uniquely about kids being there for other kids – we are the only near peer model that exists to include secondary school students.

    Kidsline is available 24/7 however when kids ring between 4pm – 9pm Monday – Friday they will speak to a Kidsline Buddy – a specially trained year 12 and 13 volunteers.

    At Kidsline we listen really carefully to what you’ve got to say. We’ll support and encourage you and help you come up with the best approach to what’s happening for you.

    You can call Kidsline on 0800 54 37 54 free from anywhere in New Zealand from a landline or mobile phone.
