Our priorities and programmes
The NSPCC’s work is focused on helping those children who are in greatest danger and distress. Our services are all designed to make the biggest difference to children possible.
Helping children through ChildLine
ChildLine is the UK’s free, confidential helpline for children and young people. Trained volunteers provide advice and support, by phone and online, 24 hours a day. Children can also receive advice by text.
Services for children and families
Our projects in local communities offer a range of services for children who have experienced, or are at risk of, abuse.
Advice for adults and professionals
Our services include the NSPCC helplines, general enquiries and specialist advice and information for adults and professionals in order to help them protect children.
Our strategy and development
Our research looks at the issues around abuse, in order to develop services, campaigns and other new ways to end cruelty to children.
Our consultancy services
We work with organisations and professional networks to help them do everything they can to protect children. If necessary we will use our authorised person status to intervene when a child’s at risk.
We work at a national, regional and local level, influencing, mobilising and educating so child protection is at the forefront of people’s minds
