The CARI Helpline (Lo Call 1890 924 567) is a specialised, confidential national service and the overarching resource provided by CARI and is often the first point of contact with the organisation
CARI has a team of specially trained Helpline Advisors available from Monday – Friday from 9.30am – 5.30pm
The expert CARI Helpline advisors respond to calls from professionals seeking referral advice and parents who have just received the devastating news that one of their children has suffered sexual abuse or they are concerned about their child’s sexualised behaviour.
Callers to the CARI Helpline often find it difficult to express themselves but the Helpline advisors are professionally trained to deal with the silence and the intense trauma that is often evident on calls
The CARI Helpline advisors will organise face to face appointments for parents and carers where there is an express and immediate need.
