Childline launches new app'For Me' is the first app to counsel young people via smartphone

Childline has launched an app that is the first to provide counselling to young people in need of help directly through their mobile devices.

The app has been named 'For Me' to ensure that it can be discreetly installed.

This means that if someone happens to see the young person's phone they can't tell it's a Childline service. See the website for more details and to download the app www.nspcc.org.uk
