Welcome to the S4C Support pages

  • Domestic violence

    Violence can take several forms, including verbal and mental abuse, but when it turns physical from someone close to you, it can be a really dangerous situation. This can happen to men or women, though it's more likely to affect women. However, support is available for men also following the story in Pobol y Cwm.

  • Abuse

    Resources which can help people, including children and young people who have been victims of violence or wish to report violent or sexual crime of any sort. Information relevant to the programme by David Williams, Cam-drin Plant: Y Gwir Sy'n Lladd.

  • Loss and bereavement

    The loss of a loved one can be devastating, and leave us with feelings of sadness, hopelessness, even anger. The details of the following organisations and helplines are if you or someone close to you have lost someone and feel in need of help, support or someone to talk to.

  • Addiction

    Addiction can come in many forms, but some of the most common addictions in our society involve alcohol, both legal and illegal drugs and smoking - these are the ones which cause the most harm in Wales. The information here is for those who are either directly or indirectly affected by such addictions, including families and carers.

  • Stalking

    Stalking can be thought of as the willful and repeated following, watching and harassing of another person. These are usually a series of actions that occur over a period of time, that can cause distress to the person who is being harassed.

The range of programmes on S4C covers a wide variety of subjects. These support pages contain details of information on these topics, including phone helplines, recorded information services and other additional help relevant to some of our programmes.

These pages are constantly updated with information about services and organisations which might be able to help you in some way.

Any phone helplines or recorded information services are usually freephone numbers, so free to landlines. The cost of calls from mobile phones will vary depending on your mobile provider. S4C is not responsible for the content of any third party sites referred to in these pages.
