Every parent/carer experiences difficulties from time to time and it’s good to have someone you can talk to and feel supported at these times.

The Parents Regional Helpline offers a freephone service based here in Northern Ireland. The team who offer this bespoke service have been specifically chosen to ensure that all callers receive the most appropriate support and guidance in relation to family issues or in simply wishing to book into up and coming programmes.

The Parenting NI helpline team all have knowledge of local services that are available regionally to ensure that all families with any additional needs can access other support if required.


Parenting NI also offer a Web Chat service via our website which you can contact us on for support and ask questions relating to any parenting issue you may be experiencing. This service is currently available Monday to Friday between 10:30 am and 11:30 am.
