Childline has launched an app that is the first to provide counselling to young people in need of help directly through their mobile devices. Available as a free download so young people can easily access Childline's online services (currently only available on Apple phones - Android version in development). App includes access to:
- 1-2-1 chat with a counsellor
- 'Ask Sam' problem pages
- Private locker - a personal area where young people can track their mood and write down their thoughts.
