Details This study examined the features of a private organization, Hiroshima Childline, that provides helpline services for children and young people by focusing on a policy network among child helpline providers in Hiroshima City, Japan. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with the Chief Director and the Secretary-General of Hiroshima Childline. This study concludes that Hiroshima Childline utilizes its expertise and specialized relationship with Childline organizations in varied areas and the national organization of Childline. It does not have to coordinate its operation of helpline services with other child helpline service providers in the same geographical area such as the city government's education board, Hiroshima Bar Association, and a regional branch of the Ministry of Justice.
