Now we're in lockdown, children need us more than ever
The coronavirus crisis is making life tough for children. Many feel anxious without school, many are trapped in unsafe homes – and some are having suicidal thoughts and feelings. That's why it's vital our Childline service is still here for children, to give them somewhere to turn. In addition, our NSPCC helpline must continue to be here so any adult who is worried about a child can get help fast.
We're working tirelessly to answer calls and help the children who need us most. We answer hundreds of concerned children and adults a day. But we just don't know what challenges will come next.
Please, will you give a gift now and make sure we can still be here for children?
“We’ve had a huge surge in calls from children struggling to cope and many are reaching out to us with suicidal thoughts. I desperately want to be here for children throughout this crisis.”
Around 90% of our income comes from those who generously choose to donate to us - people like you.
On average, we deliver 800 counselling sessions a day across 12 Childline bases.
£20 could help keep Childline and our helpline running.
