"BT is wholly committed to the cause and will continue to assure that more and more young people in need can be heard."
Sir Michael Rake / Chairman, BT
30 years of BT
BT helped set up the Childline service – they provided phones, volunteers and the iconic 8-digit freephone number which we still use today.
BT helped to build a supporter database and ensure Childline’s long-term future, by sending out the UK’s largest ever mailshot at that time.
They funded the first anti-bullying packs for schools, while raising £2.4 million for the service through the BT swimathons.
BT worked with mobile providers across the UK to ensure Childline calls remained anonymous and free.
BT provided secure funds and strategic advice to support Childline’s merger with the NSPCC.
Today, NSPCC Childline is one of BT’s strategic partners. BT are helping to transform the Childline website with their funds and expertise.

Last year a third of all calls to our helpline were about neglect, a figure that's even higher at Christmas. Donate now and help shine a light on children left in the dark.
