Everything it does is focused on keeping children safe, and giving them the support they need. ISPCC Child and Family support and mentoring services work with 1500 families and children across Ireland, and its 24-hour national listening service Childline responded to 438,000 contacts from children last year. The ISPCC helps children cope with issues that affect them such as isolation and loneliness, bullying, mental health difficulties, cyber safety, drug and alcohol misuse, trauma, violence and abuse. While some ISPCC services are a partnership with government, almost 80% of the funding comes from the generosity of the Irish public, individual or corporate donations. ISPCC also depends on the commitment of its 600 volunteers who give their time to listen to, and mentor, children across Ireland, and provide an invaluable support to a generation of children who need help.

I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of Lupus, which can present their own challenges. I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone and by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”

Britney Spears Does Carpool Karaoke and Its The Best One Yet !!!

Britney Spears Does Carpool Karaoke and Its The Best One Yet !!!

We've never been so excited to see Thursday evening, ever since James Corden took to Instagram to write these six words; "#CarpoolKaraoke with BRITNEY drops Thursday!". Obviously the duo get to the bottom of the hard-hitting facts... Like whether or not 'Oops!... I Did It Again' is about ordering guilty pleasures, like pizza. We were gonna judge James, but it actually makes a whole lotta sense.
Britney also chats about her want for my babies, and thinks... She "may never go back to men again" (but she's willing to snog them! Don't panic, guys!) The pair blast out some INSANE moves - that we're still trying to learn - to 'Womanizer', and then they discuss... Fake names. 'Cos why wouldn't you use "Ineda Dick"? We won't even mention their tickling chat!
