Childline provides a 24 hour listening service for all children up to the age of 18. We are currently recruiting for our volunteer training course due to commence June 2010.
What does Childline do?
Childline seeks to empower and support children using the medium of telecommunications and information technology. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Childline receives thousands of calls every year. These are answered by volunteers and staff who are trained to listen and understand young people. Young people contact the service for a wide range of reasons such as bullying, sexuality, everyday chat and lots of other issues.
