Vodafone & Childline

Working to keep Children safe by keeping them connected

In January 2016 we announced a new partnership with ISPCC Childline with the joint vision of keeping children safe by keeping them connected.

Childline answers over 400,000 calls, texts and online contacts from children each year and relies very much on corporate partnerships such as ours to keep the lines open 24 hours a day.

Through the partnership, Vodafone has committed the following:

  • To provide and pay for the lines for children to contact Childline until 2026
  • To help raise awareness of the Childline service and make sure every child in Ireland knows how to access it
  • To help modernise the service in line with the changing needs of children – including a new digital platform
  • To help raise awareness and educate children on how to stay safe online

But we need your help

  • Childline needs to raise €3.5 m each year to ensure it is there to listen to all children, 24/7, 365 days a year, so as well as our technology expertise and brand and comms support we very much want to engage all our employees at Vodafone in the fundraising efforts.
  • We have set a target of €175,000 for the first year, which will go towards funding Childline’s all important volunteers.
  • Without its volunteers Childline could not exist – in 2015, 543 volunteers provided a total of 65,693 hours of service across seven Childline units around Ireland.
  • The cost of funding a Childline volunteer is €4,000 and this would fund 1 volunteer for two years.
  • Childline provides each volunteer with comprehensive professional training and essential ongoing support and supervision, ensuring they can cope with the sometimes heartbreakingly difficult situations they face on every shift.
  • Vodafone’s fundraising will help Childline to be there for children, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
