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.

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.
