How your fundraising helps

The coronavirus crisis is making life hard for children – and many are contacting our Childline service for help. We’ve seen a surge in calls to Childline from children worried about the coronavirus. Many are struggling with their mental health, or don’t feel safe in their own homes. Your support can help us be here when they need someone to turn to.

“I really want to get out of the house and be somewhere safe and happy. I’m scared that my parents will get angry and hurt me more if I tell someone.”*
