What services do you provide
What do you do to help little children or young adults
Thank you for your question.
The Ask Alex service is part of the ISPCC Childline service. In short, the purpose of the ISPCC is to listen, empower, and strengthen the resilience of young people to help them live their best possible lives. The ISPCC also strives to make child protection a national priority and has a long, proud history of advocating on behalf of young people.
To achieve all of the above, we provide a range of different services. You can find out more about what we do and the various services we offer on our website www.ispcc.ie.
Childline Listening is probably our most well-known service. Childline is a free, confidential listening service for young people in Ireland up to and including the age of 18. Childline is always here for young people as it never closes. It is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Childline offers young people a non-judgmental space where they can talk about whatever is on their minds. Childline helps young people build their coping skills by empowering them to explore support options that work for them.
Childline also provides information and advice on various issues that young people find hard to cope with. This information can be accessed by reading the answers to the Ask Alex questions or by reading the different articles on the Childline website Childline.ie.
Some other things the ISPCC does are giving talks to schools and clubs. We also discuss various matters that concern young people with the government so that they can make laws and policies that help young people live their best lives. In addition, we provide support to parents so they can better support their children.
We hope you find this information useful. You are very welcome to contact us again in Ask Alex if you need more information. If you ever need to talk to someone, please remember Childline is always there for you. You don’t need to have a problem to call, and you can call us free on 1800 66 66 66 or chat with us on this website via the Live Chat button.
