Twinline

Tamba Twinline is a national, confidential, listening and emotional support service for all parents – and expectant parents – of twins, triplets and more, and the professionals involved in their care. It is staffed by trained volunteers who are parents of multiples.

Parents can phone in with any issues that are troubling them. This could include sleeping, feeding, crying, behaviour, discipline, school issues or special needs. Often all the caller needs is five minutes breathing space, a chat or a listening ear from someone who can identify with their situation.

Twinline is open everyday from 10am to 1pm and from 7pm to 10pm on: 0800 138 0509 (freephone)
