The first global meeting of child helplines was held in The Netherlands in 2003, when 49 child helplines got together to form Child Helpline International. Today, our worldwide network is more than 180-strong, an international collective of civil society and governmental organisations that listen to children every day.

Our new Regional and Deputy Regional Representatives

Regional Representatives and Deputy Regional Representatives are selected at every International Consultation to represent our child helpline members from five regions around the world for the coming two years.

The second day of the 9th International Consultation of Child Helplines was the chance for our child helpline members to gather together in their “regional spaces”, to discuss those issues most relevant to them in their part of the world.

IC2018: Day #1 Round-Up

The last sessions of the first day of the 2018 International Consultation of Child Helplines are drawing to a close – but what a busy, agenda-packed day it has been!

“ACT to EVAC – preventing online child sexual abuse and exploitation.”

Being part of the ACT to EVAC programme has made me realise all over again how important it is to collaborate in order to create safe environments for children.

“Together as a team we are determined to leave no stone unturned in ensuring child safety online.”

I consider myself lucky to be part of the Youth Advisory Council of Child Helpline International – who over the years have made it a point to be #Youth-centrist in their decision-making.
