Well done on completing the quiz!

Although it’s ultimately up to you to decide if your child is ready to spend time alone, you’re not alone in your decision.

We’re here for you, every day of the year. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to get in touch with us. Our trained Helpline professionals can support you with worries or tough decisions you’re facing about whether your child is ready. If taking this quiz has made you concerned about other children you know who stay home or go out alone, please get in touch with us.
