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?
