Childline Volunteers

  • VO70278


Description

Could you be there for children?
At Childline, our free counselling service for children, a child contacts us every 25 seconds.

And thanks to our dedicated volunteers, who do a shift each week, we can offer support when it’s needed most.

To make sure it stays that way, we’re looking for more brilliant people who want to make a difference.

After you get trained and set up in your local base, you’ll be helping children and young people who need someone to talk to. Listening to them at first and then offering support, information, or practical advice.

Interested? Then get ready to take a life-changing step forward – for you and for children.
