Volunteer with Childline

Volunteers play a hugely significant role in helping Childline to listen to children at units across Ireland. The Childline service is staffed by a team of volunteers and staff members who train and supervise volunteers to ensure a consistent and high quality service to children and young people.

Childline volunteers are of all ages and come from all backgrounds. They unite with a common purpose: to ensure children have someone who will listen. Childline volunteers do not need any prior qualifications. Comprehensive training and ongoing support is provided to all Childline volunteers before they answer their first call and for the duration of their time as a Childline volunteer.

All Childline volunteers are trained to listen and to and empower young people over phone call, text and online chat. Each Childline volunteer completes a weekly four-hour shift. See below for more information about volunteering at a location near you.
