The Helplines Standard, a nationally recognised quality standard which defines and accredits best practice in helpline work. HLP developed the Standard recognising the diverse challenges and issues faced by helplines and the multiple ways in which today’s service users wish to make contact.
With 25 years of knowledge and expertise in the helplines sector, HLP can assist with any aspect of helpline-related work whether you are looking to review or develop part of your service, or to set up a new helpline.
As the membership body for the helpline sector, HLP offer guidance and advice to those setting up a helpline. HLP have developed a start-up support package based on their knowledge and experience to help you think about the fundamental aspects of setting up a helpline.
HLP have created an effective contact logging tool which can provide essential data supporting your strategy, operations and ultimately help you to demonstrate outcomes in funding applications.
As a member of Helplines Partnership, your organisation can benefit from advertising job vacancies in their various publications or on their website at discounted rates. Non members are also welcome to use the service.
