About Kids Helpline
Kids Helpline is Australia’s only free, private and confidential 24/7 phone and online counselling service for young people aged 5 to 25.
For 27 years Australia’s kids and young people have been turning to our professional, specialised counsellors, no matter who they are, where they live or what they want to talk about.
Over this time, we have responded to over 7.5 million contacts. For some young people, connecting with Kids Helpline has been a life-saving experience, while for others it’s about practical help and emotional support at the critical moment they need someone to listen.
Why Jack wants to help Kids Helpline
"I want other kids to always have someone to talk to. Kids Helpline is very good because it gives people someone to talk to so they won't be so sad or upset."
- Jack Wilkinson, A kid who, like lots of kids, has had a few hard times in his life.
Jack has decided to help other kids like him, so he and his mum have started Jack Wilkinson Kids – a project that uses Jack’s quirky (and totally awesome) drawings to raise funds and awareness for the Kids Helpline charity. Every Jack Wilkinson Kids product sold, 50% of the proceeds are donated to Kids Helpline.
"It's so reassuring as a parent to know that Kids Helpline is there for all our children at times when we can't be." Kristy, Mum to Jack and three other kids.
