Every year, over half a million children are abused in the UK – yet the majority are left without the support and care they so desperately need. It’s time we stand up on behalf of every young person who has been abused. Sign up to our campaign here to send a message to Government, demanding they take action: http://bit.ly/1PhNNkJ
The NSPCC can never hope to end cruelty to children by itself. We set out to involve everybody and often work in partnership because child abuse is an issue that must be tackled by society as a whole. To influence attitudes and behaviour towards children, we run mass public awareness and education campaigns, using TV advertising other media.
The NSPCC runs a helpline for adults on 0808 800 5000 and ChildLine for children and young people on 0800 1111. They are free to call, open 24/7 and can also be contacted online.
Adults can talk to our trained helpline counsellors if they are worried about a child or need advice. ChildLine is a listening service for children and young people who need to talk, whatever their worry.
Watch these videos to find out more about how these very different but complementary services help protect children and young people, and offer help and support.
