Almost 7,000 counselling sessions about coronavirus have taken place with children and young people
Since the start of January Childline has delivered 6,938 counselling sessions to children and young people who have got in touch about Coronavirus (COVID-19)1.
In April, we launched our urgent appeal Still here for children to help us fund vital services like Childline, so we can continue to be here for children who need help.
The main concerns that children and young people have been talking about are the same as before lockdown. But there's been an increase in the proportion of counselling sessions which are about mental health and wellbeing2.
Indeed, every week since lockdown we delivered over 2,000 counselling sessions with children concerned about their mental health and emotional wellbeing – totalling nearly 17,000 over 7 weeks3.
For many young people, the difficult circumstances they were already facing, which can include abuse, domestic violence and difficult family relationships, have been exacerbated during lockdown leaving them feeling alone and trapped.
The main concerns that children and young people have been talking about are the same as before lockdown. But there’s been an increase in the proportion of counselling sessions which are about mental health and wellbeing.

Like the rest of the world, Place2Be is adapting as coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts society and everyday lives.
With school closures and lots of uncertainty, we’re working hard to ensure we can support as many children, young people and families as possible during this unsettling time. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing tips, advice, and updates on how to access our services.
With so much uncertainty in the world, children and young people need our emotional support now more than ever. Please donate today to help us to support the mental health of children and families across the UK.
Children are less likely to suffer from serious mental health difficulties in later life if they receive support at an early age, providing a cost saving to adult mental health services.
Growing evidence indicates that promoting positive mental health also improves a range of positive school outcomes, including attitudes to learning, better attendance and lower exclusion rates.

A holistic range of support addressing the complex needs of survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
Out in Education is an entirely student-run not-for-profit. We were founded at the University of Nottingham in 2013 and have grown year-on-year under the leadership of successive waves of enthusiastic volunteers.
We have three key aims:
1. Tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in schools
2. Support young LGBT+ people coming to terms with their sexuality
3. Train teachers to organically bring LGBT+ issues into the classroom
We work towards these by delivering assemblies and workshops on a diverse range of topics to students from KS1 to KS5. We also help schools create effective pupil-led anti-bullying policies. Our impact is demonstrated through Ofsted reports, schools displaying pupils’ anti-bullying policies and frequent repeat visits.
All our volunteers are LGBT+ university students who have recently come through the education system, and so can relate to homophobic bullying and coming out at school. As the curriculum does not make LGBT+ education compulsory, many of us felt we couldn’t be ourselves at school. Our aim in every session is to be the person we needed when we were younger and ensure no more students suffer in silence.
