Some children don't look forward to holidays

…because it means more time at home.

For 12-year-old Alice*, home was a frightening place of violence and abuse. With an alcoholic mother who flew off the handle every day, Alice felt both unsafe and unloved.

She called Kids Helpline because there was no one else she trusted.

A gentle voice answered, “Hi, can I help?”

Alice wasn't used to adults caring or asking if they could help.

So she began to talk...

These holidays our Kids Helpline Counsellors will be busy answering calls like Alice's. Your donation can help a child get the support of an adult they can trust.
