"I had nowhere to go and I didn't know what to do. I came to a phone box and decided to call Childline. It was great to be able to talk and feel listened to."

"It wasn’t easy opening up at first, but the Childline counsellor was really good at encouraging me, telling me that I was doing really well and brave for speaking out."

"I started to call Childline when I was 8. I was very angry and had a temper, so I talked to them about that and the violence at home."

How your money is spent

Boy talking to an NSPCC counsellor

During 2014 we spent £97 million on services and activities that directly benefit children and young people. This includes working with children and families, our helplines, our schools service and our child protection and awareness campaigns such as Share Aware.


Names and identifying features in case studies have been changed to protect identities. The Alfie case draws on real life examples from NSPCC services but doesn't describe a specific case.
