On average, a child contacts Childline every 25 seconds.

Childline is here for children when they have no one else to talk to and nowhere else to turn. Whatever life has thrown at them, we're here to help them feel safe and get their lives back on track.

Every day of the year, 24 hours a day, our counsellors are listening and giving children and young people the support they need. On the phone, online, anytime. It's the only service of its kind in the UK.

Right now, there are many more children out there waiting for someone to listen. We're here to protect children but we need your support. Please donate today. Help us answer every call.
