There has never been such an urgent need for a helpline for women and girls in the UK

While there are helplines for men, children, elderly people

and those with mental and physical issues - there is still not a dedicated helpline for women and girls. 

We need a helpline for women.

 

A safe place that women can turn to, to chat about anything.

Rant. Rave. Complain. Moan. Swear. Get angry, sad, emotional. Say what you think. Say what you feel. Say what you need to.

 

Polly's helpline will be a safe space where you can do all of these things or none of them. It's totally up to you.

Our aim is to be a nationwide helpline to support women and girls across the UK. To start, we are launching a 3-month pilot in Greater Manchester this summer, providing a free helpline and webchat service for women, girls, and those self-identifying as female, from the age of 13 and up. We’ll provide information, support and signpost to local Greater Manchester charities as well as national women’s services.

You can find out more on our Greater Manchester page.

 

Because there are times in all of our lives when things go wrong. People we love get sick or die. Relationships go bad. Maybe we drink too much. Money problems, work. Life's not simple.

Our helpline will be free and confidential. Staffed by women, to serve as their first port of call. A helpline to provide information and, if appropriate, signpost and connect callers with services offering specific support.

 

We aren't here to replace existing women's organisations or charities - we're here to work with them. To share our knowledge and add Polly's voice to theirs. To get women and girls the support they need. 

 

Thanks to your support we will be launching soon!

The pandemic has added to the mental health pressures experienced by women. As prime carers, the mental toll of homeschooling, paying the bills, ensuring there's enough food and worrying about how to protect their loved ones is astronomical. Many are on the frontline as nurses and doctors. 

We want Polly to be there as a pressure valve, to listen, signpost, give comfort. The mental health issues of a world pre-COVID19 are pale in comparison to the struggles of women and girls
today and in the difficult period ahead.
