We can’t let children become the long-term victims of this pandemic.

We need your support.

Contacts about physical abuse to the NSPCC helpline increased by 53% in the first 4 months of lockdown.

We need to make sure no child is left to cope alone.

This has been a difficult time for every one of us. Through it all, many children have been the hidden victims – suffering abuse and neglect at home, increased risk online, and pressures on their mental health.

"Isolation has been a torture for most. Children and young people are able to call Childline and to actually be honest. They know that someone's going to hear them."
Omar, Childline counsellor

We're still here - will you be here with us?


"'I can’t cope, I can’t cope, I can’t cope'. I hear children say that a lot now when they call us. During the pandemic so much went on out of sight for children. And the effect on their mental health - anxiety, self-harm, suicidal thoughts - it’s just the beginning. But I’m here for them. Childline is here for them. Because no child should be left to cope alone."
Omar, Childline counsellor
