About Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC)
The ISPCC has been protecting children and championing their rights since 1889. Every year the Society works with thousands of children and parents to build stronger, healthier families, who can cope with challenges, solve problems and raise happy resilient children. The ISPCC provides a range of family support services with a model of child centred practice. They main services provided to children and families are: Childhood Support Service, Child & Parent Mentoring, Leanbh & Childline.
Can you help ISPCC Childline raise funds on our National Collection Day? ISPCC Childline is holding its third National Collection Day - Childline Change 2019 - on Friday May 17th. We are reaching out to people of all ages to commit a few hours to shaking a bucket to raise vital funds for Childline. ISPCC Childline is the only service listening to children and young people in Ireland 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The service answers over 350,000 contacts every year from children and young people who may feel as though they have nowhere else to turn. Childline lets children know they are important and that they matter. A call to Childline can change a child’s life.
ISPCC Childline relies on public and corporate support to provide more than 90 per cent of this funding.
ISPCC Childline fundraisers, therefore, are essential to the charity. Without your support we could not be here to support the children and young people of Ireland.
