These calls are about making sure we're doing all we can to give you a good experience of supporting the NSPCC. They enable us to update records and check details instangly, which we otherwise wouldn't be able to do. It allows us to learn more about our supporters by having direct communication. Telemarketing is also a highly effective source of income for the NSPCC to help us raise more money for children.
Our aim is to ensure that our donors are comfortable with the amount that they are giving. In fact, many supporters welcome the opportunity to increase their regular gift or to ask about our work and how their money is put to use. It's also an opportunity to tell everyone the advantages of Gift Aid and discuss other ways of supporting us such as Legacies or fundraising.
If however, you would rather we didn't call you to ask for money please let us know by calling 020 7825 2505 or email email@example.com

The NSPCC is unable to help individuals publish or release their work. It receives many pieces of a similar nature and to attempt to help all the authors / musicians who contact us would be both time consuming and outside our remit, which is to end cruelty to children in England, the Channel Islands, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is advisable that authors or musicians contact a literary agent or record company who will be better placed to assist.
