Childline calls on the people of Ireland to take time for breakfast and help raise vital funds for Ireland’s only 24hr listening service for children and young people

This May, Childline by ISPCC is calling on families, schools, clubs and workplaces throughout the country to take time for breakfast – to sit, listen and enjoy each other’s company while hosting their own breakfast to support Ireland’s only 24/7 listening service for children and teenagers nationwide. 

 Pictured are Brogan (9) and Reggie Power (5) celebrating the launch of Rise and Shine for Childline, the charity’s national breakfast campaign designed to get people talking while raising funds for its essential services.

 Since February alone, 145 children have reached out to Childline by ISPCC’s 24/7 listening service to talk about self-harm, and 65 of those children are repeat contacts who have then gone on to reach out to us for help with suicide ideation.  Please join us by hosting your own breakfast so we can continue to be there for every child that needs us.

When you sign up to host your Rise and Shine Breakfast, you will receive your own digital pack that includes conversation starter cards designed by our in-house therapeutic experts at Childline that will help you to encourage check-ins with the children and young people in your life.

Rise and Shine for Childine is kindly supported by McCambridge bread. To sign up visit:
