Life is not always plain sailing and sometimes you need a little help or advice to help you through the tougher times. Getting the right information at the right time is so important. Just having someone to talk to about your problem can make all the difference.
Whether it is worrying about paying your fuel bills, a problem you have had with a cowboy tradesman or if you are worried about your granddaughter taking drugs, there is someone out there ready and willing to help.
Sometimes people worry about talking to strangers about their problems or think that their problems should be kept close to home, but there are always times when it is difficult to cope. Speaking to an independent person who you can trust to keep your secret can often be the best way to help you.
