    I'd REALLY like to help?

     

    Hi.

    I'm writing this for Alex-Host, but if anyone else has any answers that would be cool too.

    I'm 17, very soon 18, and I wanted to know; What can I do for Childline?

    I'd love to be able to give something back to Childline and help out. As I'm not old enough to volunteer (I don't think?), I'm not sure what I can do? Also, even when I do turn 18 it sounds as if the process to become a volunteer is long and I have other commitments (college and uni etc).

    So is there anything I can do to help now, or when I turn 18? 

    Sorry if this is too vague!

    I really, really want to help. You guys are all really great and I know how important Childline is to all of us.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    You can volounteer from age 16 for childline with parent permission. 18 + without...... if you are looking for other volounteer opportunities though you could look on the NSPCC website :)

    Hi Rawrrrrr,

    Thank you for your message. It's great that you're so keen to help out and get involved.

    Jen301 has done a great job with her information and is spot on.

    For more information, why not check out the Volunteering for ChildLine hub?

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Alex-Host

    Sorry if I'm being stupidly blind but, don't you have to live in certain cities to be able to volunteer? I can't seem to find a list of where these cities are...?

    Thanks..

    Hi RAWRRRRR,

    In order to volunteer, you'll need to be able to travel to the base nearest you.

    To find out about volunteering opportunities near you visit the Volunteer Role Search page.

    I hope this helps,

    Alex-Host.

    hiya,

    Hi Darlar,

    Yes, you need do need to be 16 years old to help and between 16 and 18 years old, you would need to have your parent's permission to volunteer.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Neverstopsmiling,

    the best way to find out about opportunities at the NSPCC is to visit this page on their website.

    I hope this helps.

    Until i am 18. (I'm 17 now) Instead of volunteering i am just going to continue helping people on the messageboards. I think childline is a very useful website :)

    Hi haz0312,

    It sounds like you are going through a difficult time at the moment.

    You can find more information about bullying if you visit the Bullying page from the Explore section.

    www.childline.org.uk/Explore/Bullying/Pages/Bullying.aspx

    Have you thought about posting a thread in the Bullying message board to see what other people have to say?

    www.childline.org.uk/Talk/Boards/Pages/Threads.aspx?boardid=4add34b5-9703-4961-b2fa-454d8aa99dd4

    I hope this helps,

    Alex-Host.
