This Christmas, help us be there in a child's darkest hour
When schools and services are closed, when children have nowhere else to turn, Childline is here. We're the only service for children open all night, all year, whatever their worry. Our counsellors give children and young people the support they desperately need 24 hours a day. And every hour of the Christmas night shifts, we expect a call from a child feeling suicidal.
It's vital we're there when children need someone to turn to. But right now, there are many more children who need our help. 1 in 3 children who contact Childline this Christmas will go unanswered.
We must be there for children. Every day, every night, whenever they need us. This Christmas our counsellors will be there. You can be there too. 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.
"As a mum, it breaks my heart to think that some kids don’t feel safe at home over Christmas. I donate to give children hope that their lives can get better and someone does care."
Janet / NSPCC supporter
"Childline was always there for me. The counsellors show love to people who don't have love in their life. I'll be forever grateful for the hope and support they gave me."
