NSPCC Statement

Munroe Bergdorf has supported the most recent phase of Childline’s campaign which aims to support children with LGBTQ+ concerns. Munroe has been referred to as a Childline Ambassador. At no point has she been an Ambassador for the Charity. She will have no ongoing relationship with Childline or the NSPCC. The NSPCC does not support, endorse or authorise any personal statements made by any celebrities who contribute to campaigns. Childline is available to children without condition to provide support whatever the nature of their concerns.


How to help a young person 

Parents can help their children who are coming to terms with trans or gender issues by:

    • asking gentle questions to start the conversation so that they don’t feel pressurised. See our tips on talking about difficult topics
    • listening to them and letting them know you’re not judging or blaming them
    • letting them know that there are support groups and medical professionals who they can talk to
    • giving them resources like Childline's advice on gender identity and sexual orientation or Young Stonewall's LGBTQ info.

If you're worried about a child

We're urging any adult who's worried about a child to contact the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000, or by emailing help@nspcc.org.uk.
