The Helpline was set up to support Care Experienced people by providing lifelong advocacy throughout Scotland. We can support, signpost and offer choice when you feel there is nowhere else to turn.
Below are some of the areas we offer support on:
Rent arrears, council tax arrears, utilities debts, ensuring you are receiving all benefits you’re entitled to and support in applying for local grants such as Crisis Grant and Community Care Grant.
Homelessness and risk of homelessness, signposting and advice guidance with accessing housing in Scotland and knowing your rights.
Connecting with Who Cares? Scotland’s services such as advocacy for children and young people, signing up as a member and volunteering.
The Helpline is open 12 noon to 4pm Monday to Friday

We give free independent information, advice and guidance on a range of topics relating to childhood deafness.

Trained volunteers visit families in their own homes or in community settings for up to 3 hours per week, offering non-judgemental, emotional and/or practical support for as long as is required or until the youngest child turns 5.
Families requiring more intensive support can be supported by a Family Support Coordinator until they can be transferred onto volunteer service.
