Our Frontline: support for social care workers

Care workers are under pressure like never before. It can be hard to prioritise your own mental health when you’re caring for others in such a difficult situation – but your wellbeing matters.

Let us help

Our Frontline offers round-the-clock one-to-one support, along with a collection of resources, tips and ideas chosen to support your mental health as you do your work to protect us all and keep the country going. To talk by text, text FRONTLINE to 85258 any time. To talk by phone, call 0300 131 7000 from 7am to 11pm if you’re in England, or call 116 123 any time if you’re elsewhere in the UK.

It’s all in confidence, with trained volunteers.

Below, you’ll find some more details about the help that’s available, and some other things that we think you’ll find useful. When you can, take a moment and have a look through. We’ll keep it updated as we learn more about what’s helpful to you over the coming weeks and months.
