Ask Ali

What's on your mind?

If you’re finding life difficult and would like some help or advice you can write to Ask Ali. We’ll read and reply to every letter either directly to you or by putting the reply on this site (you can choose how we do this). Your question won’t appear on the site until we’ve read it and responded. You can also have a look at what other young people have written in case you’re experiencing something similar.

Every young person who SAFE@LAST works with is entitled to confidentiality.  That means that we don’t tell other people what you tell us.  But we also want to ensure you’re safe.  So if you tell us on this website (or through the helpline or face to face) that someone is hurting you, that you know someone else is hurt or that you’re not safe we share this with a SAFE@LAST Manager.  The SAFE@LAST Manager may then may decide to pass this information on to a Police Officer or a Social Worker.


SAFE@LAST has two websites. for young people looking for help and advice and for people wanting to know about the charity.

You’re on the site for young people. Is this where you want to be?
