Every child young people have a voice -our mission is to make their voices heard, respected and acted upon

The global network of child helplines marks the International Child Helpline Day by calling on governments to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular urgently to end all forms of violence against children. Ensure that every child and young people in all countries have information about and access to high quality child helpline so that children exposed to abuse and violence can be supported and responded to.
