The work we do
The NSPCC helps end cruelty to children in the UK in a range of different ways.
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.
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.
Our projects in local communities offer a range of services for children who have experienced, or are at risk of, abuse.
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 research looks at the issues around abuse, in order to develop services, campaigns and other new ways to end cruelty to children.
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.
There are a variety of ways that you can help end cruelty to children in the UK.
