The Connect Project
Connect is a free phone counselling service for any adult who has experienced abuse, trauma or neglect in childhood. The service is also available to partners or relatives of people with these experiences.
With Connect you can talk in confidence with a trained counsellor who can listen or help with questions you have. Connect is not intended to be a crisis service but a supportive and therapeutic service for people who would like to talk about the abuse, neglect or trauma they have suffered, or want help in dealing with the past to help take better control of their lives today.
To speak to a counsellor call:
Freephone 1800 477 477

Calls are free from landlines, but there may be an operator charge from a mobile phone.
