Sheila Donovan

Sheila was formerly the Executive Director from 2015-2017, before retiring and joining the Board. She now returns to her former role, and will act as our interim Executive Director for the next months.

“It’s exciting to be back at the helm at such a busy and important time for Child Helpline International. There’s a lot to achieve during the coming period, as various projects continue with our partners at ICMEC and UNICEF, and we launch the first of our Communities of Practice in the EU. This year will also see the introduction of our new Quality Assurance Framework for Child Helplines, in which we introduce the minimum quality standards that we believe all child helplines need to meet. Most important, though, is the International Consultation, which I am sure is going to be a great success! I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting with some old friends in Toronto!”
