Who we are
ChildLine is the UK’s free and confidential, 24-hour helpline for children in distress or danger. Trained volunteer counsellors comfort, support and protect children and young people who may feel they have nowhere else to turn.
Children call ChildLine about a wide range of problems, but the most common problems are abuse (both sexual and physical), bullying, family tensions, worries about friends’ welfare, and teenage pregnancy.
Children and young people can call ChildLine about anything – no problem is too big or too small. Our aim is to be there whenever and wherever children need us.
Your generosity and donations let us answer even more calls from distressed children. Money raised through Virgin Money Giving goes towards improving and expanding ChildLine services through the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children).
ChildLine is a service provided by the NSPCC, registered charity numbers 216401 and SC037717.
