Our patron: Dame Esther Rantzen
Dame Esther Rantzen first became a household name for her programme ‘That’s Life’, which ran for 21 years. While presenting ‘That’s Life,’ she championed the causes of consumers in the UK, and became experienced and influential in these matters. She went on to create other programmes such as ‘Hearts of Gold’ and ‘Old Dogs, New Tricks’, but what she is probably most loved for and will always be remembered for was the creation of Childline.
After a child had starved to death in a locked bedroom, the BBC aired a programme called ‘Childwatch,’ to showcase the sort of things people should be aware of with children that were being caused distress. After the programme, Dame Esther suggested to the BBC they should set up a free helpline for children currently in bad situations. They did so for 48 hours, and the helpline was swamped with calls. This gave her the idea to set up a permanent helpline, which she felt was very much needed for children who had no one they could turn to.
Consultations with childcare agencies proved to her children would use the helpline, but their general opinion was that it would be impossible to set up. They had not reckoned on the determination and abilities of Dame Esther Rantzen. Funding was secured, £50,000 from two sources. Dame Esther agreed with a philanthropist that he would cover the costs for the first year. She then approached BT who provided premises and a free phone number easy for children to remember, 0800 1111.
On the first night it was set up in October 1986 over 50,000 children attempted to call. In 2006 Childline merged with the NSPCC, enabling it to expand to meet demand. Childline was the first of its kind in the world, and has now been copied in over 150 other countries.
Accident Advice Helpline is extremely proud to have Dame Esther as our patron.
