Our achievements at a glance
The FULL STOP Campaign began in 1999 as the NSPCC’s way of involving everyone in society with ending cruelty to children.
As well as ChildLine joining the NSPCC in 2006, our achievements include:
- creating a pioneering online counselling service, which helped more than 1,000 young people to speak out for the first time about abuse they had suffered
- helping to protect thousands of children from abuse – since the creation of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) which the NSPCC campaigned for, more than 166 networks of sex offenders have been dismantled
- working with more professional groups and local agencies to keep children safe. More than 5,000 professionals use our child protection site, Inform
- gathering massive public support as part of the FULL STOP Campaign
- helping more than 750,000 children, young people and families through our local services
- increasing the amount of public support amongst adults -in 2009 more than 80 per cent of adults regularly told us that ending cruelty to children is one of their top causes – an increase of 65 per cent from the launch of FULL STOP in 1999.
These are just a handful of the milestones we reached between 1999-2009. We couldn’t possibly cover every achievement here, as the FULL STOP Campaign brought together so many people to provide services, campaign, work with others and educate the public.
