Childline are appealing for the public to donate to the ISPCC

Childline Chief Executive, John Church, has released a statement appealing to the public to donate to the organisation.

 

In is statement, Mr Church says:

 

"But child abuse does not stop in a pandemic. Nor does neglect. Nor do mental health difficulties or self-harm.

 

"In many cases, children and young people across the country are experiencing these issues more acutely now than ever before."

 

He says it is vital that the public support the ISPCC at this time:

 

"Childline will continue to be there for them 24 hours a day, every day – but only if we receive public support at this critical time. We rely on donations for 90 per cent of our funding."

You can donate at: ISPCC.ie/donate-now.
