Here for children

No child should have to cope alone. That's why whatever's going on in the world, whatever they're facing, we're here for children.

Right now, we know that many children are not coping. 

Every day, we hear from children who are feeling isolated, struggling with their mental health or suffering abuse and neglect. They're dealing with pressures no child should have to face, burdened with worries no child should have to carry. 

Our Childline service listens to and supports children, and gives them a safe space to turn to. Whatever they're facing, we're here to show children that they matter, that we understand and that they're not alone.

Sioned's story

My home life was always chaotic. My parents argued a lot and when I was 13 they split up and my dad moved out. I was trying to function as a normal teenager but it was hard to pretend that everything was OK.

If I hadn't had Childline to turn to then I would have maybe killed myself or gone down the wrong route in life. They saved my life so many times.
