Who are hotlines or helplines for?

Anyone who is struggling with experiences of abuse, assault, exploitation, trafficking or mental health or anyone who is concerned about someone else in a situation of harm or violence.

Are they anonymous?

They can be. You do not have to disclose your name or any information that you do not want to. Everything from your call is kept confidential.
