Help us be here tonight

Abuse can happen at any time of the day or night. And when it does, it’s vital that children have someone they can talk to – no matter the hour.

That’s why our Childline counsellors are here 24/7 to listen and help with whatever children are facing.

Please donate now so we can be here when children need us. We can’t do it without you.

Being a Childline volunteer is extremely rewarding. I feel privileged to play such a vital role for such a valuable organisation. Without Childline, I know there would be countless children and young people who would have nowhere to turn to – and I am grateful to give my time to those children that need me.
