Childline volunteers will answer over 1,000 calls from children this Christmas Day.
Last Christmas day, Childline volunteers answered over 1,040 calls from frightened, lonely or hurt children.
At Childline, there is no silent night. While houses across the country are filled with Christmas cheer and excitement, there are also houses filled with fear and violence. There are children experiencing fear, loneliness, pain and neglect.
Thankfully, many of these children reach out to Childline. Some share their worries and fears, however others are too afraid to talk. They feel alone and helpless. Christmas is just another day for children and young people across Ireland and that is why Childline volunteers are there to answer their calls 24/7. Our incredible volunteers give up their time to be there for children who need someone to listen.
