Right now, many children are struggling to cope.

They're facing abuse, neglect, and bullying, and their mental health is at breaking point. Thousands of children are calling Childline with thoughts of self-harm and suicide, and many have nowhere else to turn.

Childline must be here for children this Christmas. But we need your help.

I’ve been feeling so lonely over the past few months and have been through so much this year. I’m feeling really suicidal.

 

I have tried to end it before and have been in hospital. I don’t want to live until Christmas.

How your donations make an impact

Every 25 seconds a child contacts Childline for help.

This year, Childline has seen a 29% rise in calls from young children struggling with their mental health.

Around 90% of our funding comes from our supporters, helping us reach children across the UK.

There are lots of ways you can support our work if you aren't able to donate online.
