Over Christmas, Childline holds 10 counselling sessions a night about suicidal thoughts and feelings.
It costs £27 for a Childline supervisor’s time for 1 hour, supporting our volunteer counsellors.
"Childline counsellors offer the chance to listen to a young person, to listen without any judgement. The simplicity of it is what's beautiful and it absolutely deserves to be supported."
Helen / Childline counsellor
"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."
Volunteer for Childline
Becoming a Childline volunteer means being there when a child needs you the most. Just 4 hours out of your week can help us be there for children in their darkest hour.
Sometimes all they need is someone like you who has the time to listen.
