    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.

    How do you become a Childline Volunteer?
    You must have a genuine desire to listen to children, and have a sincere interest in helping to support children. We are looking for volunteers to give 4 hours of their time a week for a minimum of one year. In return, the ISPCC will provide comprehensive training, monthly support and supervision.

    How To Contact Us
    If you’re interested in becoming a Childline volunteer please call Margaruete Kevitt on 041 9833406 for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.

    If anyone is thinking of doing this I can’t recommend it highly enough….the volunteer training is second to none and it really gives you all the skills you need. I’m just finished my training and am really happy to be giving up 4hrs a week to a service that provides so much to young people.
