Safety Line
Safety Line is the main project of Safety Line Association. This is a telephone crisis help line intended for children and youth under 18 years of age, which they may call for free 24 hours a day. The Safety Line is pattered after the British ChildLine, which provided Safety Line with the necessary know-how in the beginning and training of the first consultants and the Safety Line team manager. Since its foundation on 1 September 1994, Safety Line has never interrupted operations and has been reliably listening to and helping children calling with their problems and concerns.
• Message Home Line
Message Home Line is a child crisis intervention line intended particularly for child runaways from home, children's or reformatory homes or children expelled from home. Juveniles who are not yet on the run, but a situation in the family, at school or children's or reformatory home is so acute that they are seriously considering running away, may also call this line. The last but not least group of children helped by the Message Home Line are children and juveniles who are afraid of returning home because of a comment in the pupil's report card or a lost mobile phone.
