Cheerios Childine Breakfast 2017
Ireland's Biggest Breakfast is back and will take place between the 16th and 22nd of October.
"The ISPCC has consistently urged robust regulation of charities"
The ISPCC is deeply concerned at allegations of poor governance and financial mismanagement at Console. Read ISPCC CEO Grainia Long's statement on the governance problems at the charity.
Childline Service closed from 11am, Monday 16th October, until safe to re-open
The Childline telephone, online and text services will cease operating this morning from 11am until it is safe to re-open.
This decision has been taken following official advice for people to stay indoors and avoid travel where possible, as the ISPCC has a duty of care to its volunteers and staff members.
We regret that the service will not be available during the impact of Storm Ophelia and we will be working to ensure the service can be restored as soon as it is safe to do so.
Many thanks to all our volunteers and staff members. We hope to restore normal service as soon as possible from this evening.
There is some advice available online on our Childlline website which people may find useful: https://www.childline.ie/index.php/support/574.
If any child is in danger, please call the Gardai immediately on 999.
Stay safe everyone.
The Childlline team.
