"As a society we have a duty to protect all children and to show - as a community - that we care about them."
"It's time our country started to support our own vulnerable children. These children are our future - workforce, doctors, nurses ..."
" It is everybody’s business to make sure children are safe and given the right support."
Your help makes a difference
In 2014, it wasn’t illegal for an adult to send a child a sexual message – online grooming wasn’t a crime.
Thanks to the 50,000 people who signed our petition and emailed the Minister for Online Child Protection, now it is.
Before 2015, child witnesses in abuse cases had to risk seeing their abuser to give evidence in court.
Over 21,000 people signed our petition and emailed their MP. Children can now give evidence somewhere safe.
Until 2015, adults in positions of power – from coaches to youth leaders – could have sex with young people in their care.
Over 3,500 NSPCC campaigners emailed their MP our email template. Government listened and is reviewing the law.

Fight for a Fair Start for every family
1 in 5 mums and 1 in 10 dads face mental health problems during and after pregnancy. Because of a lack of services, funding, training or staff - many parents can't get the help they need.
Help us end the Wild West Web
Social media isn't safe. There are up to 90 reports of grooming and child abuse a day. Help us pass the Online Harms Bill to help keep children safe from abuse like online grooming.
