Learning Partnership West has set up a free confidential text and online support service called LOTTY for young people in Bristol aged between 11 and 25.

Young people can text confidentially on 07786 20 20 40, contact us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/lottylpw/ or start a live chat at https://116sms.com/livechat?srv=aVVOxjKXO6r2RkydjoWf

This is what LOTTY is all about:

•We are here to listen, not tell

•We will wait to be asked before giving advice

•We’re not a counselling service – LOTTY is for information, advice and guidance

•We’re here to help you find the right answers for yourself

•It’s up to you how much you tell us and we will use the information you give us to help keep you safe

Young people can contact LOTTY from 2pm to 10pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and from 2pm to 7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
