Bullying Support for Young People

If you are aged between 11-19 and are being bullied, you can contact your local IPEH hub. The team can give advice on how to cope with bullying or refer you to a case worker who can provide one-to-one support or other help. You can email or phone the hub or ask someone you trust to contact them on your behalf.

Emergency Text Service

This emergency text service is an alternative to calling 999, perfect for people who have difficulty talking on the phone, have no or limited speech or are deaf/have limited hearing. The phone needs to be pre-registered but is quick and easy, once it's done all you do is text the service you want e.g. Police to 999

It's also useful for if you find yourself in a weak signal area, enough for a text but not enough for a call.
