Free, safe and anonymous online support for young people
February 1, 2018
Kooth is for young people aged 11-19 living in the Swindon area. It offers online counselling and also peer to peer support through forum meetings and information and advice in the form of articles and blogs by young people.
Access to Kooth is free to young people and they are anonymous within the site and cannot directly engage with each other as the forum meetings and threads are moderated by one of Kooth’s workers.
The service can be accessed 24 hours per day, 7 days a week and Counsellors are on line Monday-Friday 12:00pm-10:00pm. Saturday and Sunday 6:00pm-10:00pm. Outside times when staff are not available young people can still message the team who will respond when they log on.
