People's Postcode Lottery & NSPCC

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery are helping to support Childline through donating around £30,000 a day during March.


Sarah's story

Sarah, one of our Liverpool counsellors, shares the story of how she helped a young boy understand that the death of his mother wasn't his fault.

Life-changing support

Beginning in 2019, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have helped raise over £1 million for the NSPCC, with around £30,000 a day going towards paying for Childline during March.

Our Childline service is there to give young people a voice when no one else is listening. Whatever problems or dangers they’re facing, we’re a place for them to turn for support – any time of day or night.

Last year, Childline counsellors like Sarah were there to carry out almost 280,000 counselling sessions with children and young people. They were there to help them when they felt no one else would listen. And our Childline website received almost 3.2 million visits, giving information and advice to help young people overcome any worries they had.

The majority of our counselling sessions are now delivered online, with children and teenagers preferring to communicate via 1-2-1 chat, which takes longer and is more costly. This is why People’s Postcode Lottery’s support couldn’t come at a better time for the NSPCC service.
