On average, a child contacts Childline every 25 seconds
During the coronavirus pandemic, with schools closed and when home isn't a safe place for every child, many children have nowhere to turn for help. They need our Childline counsellors more than ever. We're working hard to ensure we're still here for children.
We've changed fast to make sure we're here when children need someone to turn to. But we don't know what challenges will come next. Help us ensure we're still here for children tomorrow. Please donate now.
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.
£5 could help make sure every child is listened to.
"My mum is being very distant with me and I am usually very close to her. She's really obsessed with the news and she won't hug me or get very close to me. It scares me to think this will go on for months. She constantly talks about the coronavirus and my anxiety is getting worse."
