The new lockdown and school gates closing have left thousands of children in crisis.
Some are feeling lonely and isolated at home, others are scared and anxious. And Childline could be the only place they can turn to for help.
Will you help us continue to be here for every child?
"I always feel like school is my happy place. When they said they were shutting I completely broke down.
I’ve really had enough of being ’shut away’ from everything and everyone and wasting my childhood sat in my house.”
