Right now, thousands of children across the UK are being abused, having their childhoods destroyed.
For children suffering alone, the NSPCC can be their only hope.
Every year we help keep over a million children safer. We are here to listen, reassure, and take action to protect children. Supporting children and families to stop abuse from happening and help them recover if it does.
But we need your help to be here for every child.
"When I was 9, I was sexually abused by a close family member. By the time I was 12, it was destroying me. I spoke to Childline and they helped me build up the courage to confide in a teacher.
After suffering anxiety and depression, I was referred to NPSCC's Letting the Future In service, which helps children recover after sexual abuse, and had weekly therapy sessions.
It's made an amazing difference to me. I don't think I would be here at all now if it wasn't for the NSPCC."
How your donations make an impact
Every 25 seconds a child contacts Childline for help.
Last year, 47% of contacts answered by the NSPCC helpline resulted in a referral.
Around 90% of our funding comes from our supporters, helping us reach children across the UK.
