The department regularly receives representations from parliamentarians and voluntary sector organisations, as well as media enquiries about the importance of ChildLine.

On 22 January 2018, NSPCC launched the “Are You There?” campaign asking the government to increase funding to ChildLine in response to the publication of ‘Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision’ in December 2017.
