What do I do if I am the victim of homophobic, biphobic and/or transphobic bullying or harassment?
EACH provides a free and confidential, homophobic, biphobic or transphobic bullying reporting service for children and young people up to 18 years of age. If you have been a target of this bullying you can call our freephone Helpline on 0808 1000 143 (Monday to Friday, 9:00am – 4:30pm) or scroll this section to the bottom and use our online self-reporting form to receive the same support.
Will you tell my school, college or my parents if I ring you?
No. EACH is a registered charity that is completely independent. No-one else has access to any personal information you choose to give us without your consent as long as you reassure us you don’t intend to harm yourself or someone else.
Who will answer my call?
Trained staff who will listen to you, provide you with professional, confidential guidance and decide, with you, the best course of action. If they are busy speaking to another caller or with a client, and your call cannot be taken, please call again within our designated hours (Monday to Friday, 9am-4pm) or scroll this section to the bottom and use our online reporting form.
Are Helpline calls free?
Calls are free from landlines, payphones and most mobiles. Our number should not appear on a landline bill when the call is free. Calls from some mobiles operators will be chargeable but you will be told this by your mobile service provider before your call comes through to us.
How does your help work?
The closer to us you are the more comprehensive our help can be. If you’re a long way away we’ll signpost you to the most relevant agency in your area able to help you.
