Play your part this Childhood Day

It’s Childhood Day on 11 June! We’re getting the UK playing and raising money to help keep children safe – and we need your help

Play is an important part of childhood and has a whole host of benefits. After the year we’ve had, we could all do with a bit more play. This Childhood Day on 11 June, we’re asking the UK to come together to play, raise money and help keep children safe.

It doesn’t matter how you play this Childhood Day, it just matters that you play your part. There are lots of ways you can get involved…

  • Host a play day and raise money.
  • Have fun at a play day!
  • Stock up on fun and games from the NSPCC shop.
  • Donate what you can to help protect children.
  •  Spread the word about Childhood Day.

It doesn’t matter if you’re five or 85, we all love to play – whether it’s playing cards, driving toy cars, building bricks or performing magic tricks – fun is for everyone.

So sign up today for your free pack and join us on 11 June for Childhood Day.

Childhood shapes who we become. Abuse never should. So join us on 11 June and play your part.

About Childline

Our Childline service is here for children every day. During lockdowns, when children have been isolated from many of the services and people they would normally turn to for support, Childline’s keyworker counsellors and supervisors in bases across the UK have been a lifeline. Now children have returned to school, we know the impact of the pandemic isn’t over. When a young person needs help or feels like they have nowhere else to turn to, it’s vital that we’re here, ready to listen.
