Who do you help?


Hi there, you are very welcome to Ask Alex.  

Thank you for contacting us.  

Here at ISPCC Childline, we try to help and support children, young people, and families by providing a range of services and by advocating for change to enhance the lives of children in Ireland.  

Our Childline Listening Service is Ireland’s 24-hour national listening service for all children and young people (up to and including the age of 18). It is free, private, confidential, and non-judgemental. Children contact Childline to talk about what’s going on for them. Some children who contact Childline may feel upset, or isolated, while others simply contact Childline to chat about their day or share their hopes and dreams.  

We also help and support children and young people through our one-to-one therapeutic support services, Digital Mental Health and Wellbeing Programmes aimed at anxiety management, the resilience-building Smart Moves programme for children and young people making the transition from primary to secondary school and more. You can find more information on all these services here 

Here at the ISPCC we also support parents and carers through services such as our Parenting Support Line and Parenting Hub 

If you would like to chat in more detail about what we do and who we help, you are very welcome to contact the Childline Team by phone on 1800 66 66 66 or through our web chat on  

Thank you for reaching out to us.  

Take care,
