Dear Madam, Sir,

There are in various countries so called 'anonymous help telephone
numbers' that can be dialled by children in need of help, information
or guidance. Could you please help me with the outcomes of studies
that look at the sort of questions these children raise and whether
there are changes in these questions over the years. It would be good
if you could direct me to studies from various countries.

Thank you very much!

There is no answer at this time.

both Northern Ireland and the UK, who are responsible for finding
political solutions, to be aware of the effect that living under the
pressure of violence and political unrest can have on children.

These reports are charged for documents. Info is at
