Replies to Emails

We have received notification that replies to emails sent to the may not be getting through to those who emailed us. We are very sorry if anyone has sent us an email and has not received a reply.

Our technical support team is looking into this matter. In the mean time, we ask that you also check your spam folders to make sure that the reply has not been sent there.

Our email service is still open at the moment. However, if you would like to get in touch with us in other ways our phone lines are open 7pm-7am every night of the Cambridge University term. You can call us at 01223 0744444.

Thank you for your help and understanding as we work to get to the bottom of this!

Best wishes,


Email service now working!

We are pleased to say that our email service is now back up and running. This means you can email us anonymously about anything that is on your mind and we’ll send you a reply within 48 hours.  Please remember that although our software anonymises your email, it won’t take away any automatic signatures at the bottom of your email.

To get in touch, you can reach us at We’ll listen, not lecture.
