Talk to a youth worker (anonymously)

Life as a young person can be a mish. Words can be hard. Sometimes you want answers and other times you might just want to be heard. Zeal’s online chat with a youth worker is an anonymous and confidential online conversation on your terms.

If you are concerned that you or someone you care about is at risk of harm:

please contact 111 or consider talking to a helpline.

Why talk to a Zeal youth worker?


Share as much or as little as you like. We won’t collect or store any personal information about you.

Not a helpline

No 20 questions before we start listening. We’ll talk on your terms. We’re here to tautoko (support & encourage) you.



Your chat stays private and protected.
