ISPCC (Irish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children) is a national charity dedicated to enhancing the lives of children and young people; they are at the heart of everything we do. We provide Childline’s suite of services. Our child-centred services, programmes and supports are focused on strengthening resilience and developing coping competencies.

By listening to, supporting and empowering children and young people, we strive to ensure they are better equipped to face life’s ups and downs and reach their full potential. We speak out and advocate for meaningful change that will enhance their lives today and leave a legacy of improved childhood experiences for future generations of children and young people. Many children feel alone, confused, anxious or misunderstood while others face more challenging situations including violence, abuse, and suicidal thoughts. We are here to help them cope better and be stronger for the future, whatever problems they face. Your funding will directly support these essential, 24-hour services.

Your fundraising would be spent supporting our Childline services. The ISPCC Childline Listening Service is a 24-hour, 365 days a year, free service for all children under the age of 18. The service can be contacted by phone or online live chat, nationwide. Your fundraising will also provide structure, training, and mentorship for a board of children to be actively involved in every aspect of the ISPCC, contributing to our strategic direction and the evolution of our service offering. This National Youth Advisory Board will play a key role in identifying and addressing problems that our young people face today and over the next number of years. Together, we will ensure that the organisation’s services for children and young people, as well as its policies, literature, social media, and campaigns are as child-centred and as relevant as possible.
