Our Vision

Childline’s vision is of a society in which all children are loved, valued and able to fulfil their potential.

Childline’s Mission

It is Childline Gibraltar’s mission to end all forms of cruelty to children in Gibraltar and for this to happen we need to be able to reach out to all those children, parents and families that need us; when they need us.

Our Values

Childline Gibraltar’s core values are based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child:

  • Children must be protected from all forms of violence and exploitation.
  • Everyone has a responsibility to support, care and protect children.
  • We listen to children and young people, respect their views and respond to them directly.
  • Children should be encouraged and enabled to fulfil their potential.
  • We challenge inequalities for children and young people.

A Brief History

The ideologies which underpin the development of Childline Gibraltar are derived from two major national organisations in the United Kingdom – The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and ChildLine UK.

On 28th June 2006, at an event held at The Mount, Childline Gibraltar was jointly launched by Dame Esther Rantzen (ChildLine UK) and John Cameron (NSPCC).

Like the NSPCC and ChildLine UK, Childline Gibraltar was started by a group of individuals who believed that there was a need for this service in Gibraltar.

Building on the principles and experience gained by the NSPCC and ChildLine UK and maintaining close working links with both these organisations, Childline Gibraltar continues serving our local community.
