Childline offer 24 hour, 7 days a week, 365 days a year cover to the Royal Gibraltar Police or HM Customs for an Appropriate Adult to be available for every child under 18 in Gibraltar.

We have been providing this service for almost 15 years.

We are an associate member of the UK National Appropriate Adult Network (NAAN) and liaise with them to ensure that the standard of training and delivery is of the same high standards in Gibraltar.

The criminal Procedure and Evidence Act 2011 places a duty on custody sergeants to have an appropriate adult present to safeguard the interests of children and young persons detained or questioned by police officers.
