ChildLine Schools Service
Talking to children about abuse and how to get help
Our ground-breaking ChildLine Schools Service uses specially trained volunteers to talk to primary school children about abuse, giving them the skills to protect themselves and showing them where to go to for help.
From 2016, we hope that our volunteers will speak to every primary school child and continue visiting each school every two years - reaching 1.7 million children across the UK.
How the Schools Service works
We're not going to let children suffer in silence. Our specially trained volunteers will speak to school children in every community about how to stay safe and where to go to for help.
Why we need to act
We have found from our helpline that abuse can start earlier than when a child contacts us. So we're reaching out to younger children so they know they are not alone and help is available.
How ChildLine is helping children across the UK
ChildLine is dedicated to being there for children and young people whenever they need help and support through a 24/7 helpline and online service.
