Beneficiary - Think Family eSafety 2016

The leading children's charity in the UK specialising in child protection

The NSPCC is the leading children’s charity fighting to end child abuse in the UK and Channel Islands. We help children who have been abused to rebuild their lives, protect those at risk, and find the best ways of preventing abuse from ever happening.

How we’re fighting for every childhood

We’re preventing abuse

We work with families when they’re going through difficult times – like battling addiction or overcoming mental health problems. We offer all kinds of support – from helping new parents care for their baby to giving professionals the tools they need to assess neglect.

We’re visiting primary schools and helping children understand what abuse is and giving them the confidence to speak out and seek help if they ever need it.

We’re helping parents keep their children safe through campaigns like the Underwear Rule and Share Aware.

We’re working in every community in the UK and Channel Islands – including yours.

We’re protecting children

Every 10 minutes someone contacts the NSPCC helpline.

Our counsellors are there 24 hours a day, to help parents, professionals and anyone worried about a child in the UK. We will listen to your concerns, offer advice and support and can take action on your behalf if a child is in danger.

Every 25 seconds a child calls ChildLine.

Our volunteers have conversations that mean we can protect children in abusive situations by getting them the help they need, when they need it most.

We’re transforming children’s lives

If a law needs to change, or if more needs to be done to protect children, we demand it. The fact we’re independent – relying on our supporters to fund our work – means we can push for change when others can’t.

Since 1884, we’ve made headlines but – more importantly – we’ve made a difference.

We’re learning about what works

We have to do everything we can to understand child abuse. So that means finding answers to difficult questions. Like what makes child abuse more likely to happen? Learning about what works in the fight against child abuse and neglect is central to what we do.
