Telefono Azzurro promotes total respect for the rights of children and adolescents.
Through our activities, we support their development and protect them from abuse and violence that may affect their well-being and stop them from reaching their full potential.
Every day, we listen to children and adolescents and offers concrete answers to their requests for help, also through collaboration with institutions, associations and other local realities.
Similarly, we cooperate with international organizations for the promotion of a culture of rights.
Telefono Azzurro pursues the well-being of every child and their right to grow up in a safe environment, within a network of relationships that can ensure its development and prevent abuse and distress.
Telefono Azzurro was founded in 1987 in Bologna: the promoter of the initiative was Ernesto Caffo, at the time associate professor of Child Neuropsychiatry at the University of Modena.
The association was created to listen to children’s requests for help, a concrete response to the “right to listen” recognized to the child by the International Convention on the Rights of the Child signed by the United Nations.
Today, Telefono Azzurro offers helpline and hotline (telephone, mobile, web, chat, apps, social network), and promotes prevention initiatives, through education and awareness projects in for students, educators, general public and policymakers.
