Priorities and programmes
Find out more about the NSPCC's seven priorities and the programmes we have developed to tackle these issues.
We are focusing on seven priority areas where we believe we can make the biggest difference.
Problems of neglect are severe, making up nearly half of all abuse cases in England.
Without help, sexually abused children can develop long-term social, emotional and mental health problems.
Home Office figures suggest one child is killed every 10 days in England and Wales.
Babies in the UK are eight times more likely to be killed than children of any other age.
Research shows that 62 per cent of looked after children enter care as a direct result of abuse or neglect.
Disabled children are three times more likely to suffer abuse than other children.
