Childline’s “Stay silent so children can be heard” campaign


MARY GAMBLE of Childline joins Yvette Reid to discuss the “Stay silent so children can be heard” campaign. This is a sponsored silence event to highlight the issue of child abuse and to raise funds for the Childline service. Participants undertake a 25-minute blackout of sound and media.

Mary says Childline can only answer one in every three calls made to the service because of a lack of funding.
