NSPCC stands for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children
It means that each of us has a responsibility to keep childhood free from abuse, and we must do everything possible to protect children and prevent it from happening.
So if a law needs to change, or if more needs to be done to protect children, we demand it. The fact that we’re independent – relying on the public to fund our work – means we can push for change when others can’t.
1 in 5 children in the UK have suffered abuse or neglect. That’s why, across the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, we’re working to protect children today and prevent abuse from happening tomorrow.
But we can’t reach every child without your help.
Our 'Every Day' campaign shows the amazing difference we can make together – real stories told by real NSPCC practitioners and volunteers about the children and families they’ve worked with and the life-changing impact they’ve seen.
Protecting children today, preventing abuse tomorrow
Child abuse is preventable, not inevitable. That’s why, every day, we work to protect children, prevent abuse and make child abuse a thing of the past.
That’s why we’re here. That’s what drives all our work, and that’s why – as long as there’s abuse – we'll fight for every childhood. As the UK’s leading children's charity fighting to end child abuse, we’ve remained committed to this mission for over 100 years.
But all this is only possible with your support. As an independent charity, which receives around 90% of its funding from supporters, we rely on the support of people like you to make sure we can keep every child who needs us safe. Every pound raised and every penny received will help make sure we can reach more children.
How you can help change children's lives
The more people who support our vital work and join our mission, the more we can help keep children safe. Big or small, there’s something each of us can do to help bring an end to child abuse. Every pound raised, every petition you sign, every minute of your time, will help make sure we can fight for every childhood.
