Children’s helpline ‘struggled to cope’ with Christmas calls
The ISPCC says it struggled to cope with hundreds of calls it received from distressed children this Christmas.
The help-line handled nearly 700 calls from children seeking help on Christmas Day.
Most of the children had been left alone at Christmas, or were upset by alcohol abuse in their home.
The thirty volunteers who manned the line say many children were unable to get through because the lines were busy.
I think it is important that we think f the most vulnerable in today’s society and they need more protection. Come on Bertie wheres that referendum!
