To make a referral as a young person:

If you are a young person in need of help, the most important thing after an assault is that you are safe. If you think you are in any danger at all, it is very important that you call the police if it is safe to use your phone. Call 999 straight away if you think you are in any danger (for textphone, dial 18000) and ask for the police.If you are safe now, but in need of help for something that has happened to you or a friend, the best thing to do is speak to an adult that you trust. This may be your parent, a teacher, or a social worker. You can ask them to make a referral to Imara with the details on this page.

If you are 16 or over, you can self refer by calling EMCYPSAS on 0800 183 0023

No matter what time you call, the person you speak to will be experienced in helping children and young people get the support they need.
