Half a million children a year suffer abuse in the UK.

This must change. And our NSPCC Helpline is there to help family, friends, teachers, and neighbours help keep children safe.

Every day we receive nearly 200 calls from adults worried about the children in their lives – over a third of them so serious that we immediately involved external services to protect the child. Others had noticed something that meant we could stop abuse before it started.

Your donation is vital. Because of you, our committed Helpline staff can continue to be there for every child who needs us – protecting them today and preventing abuse tomorrow.

Will you donate to help answer the calls that can stop abuse?

Just now I heard the parent screaming and shouting and I heard them say, "Shut up, you ***" towards their 3-year-old son. This led to the boy crying constantly.


As well as the shouting, I’ve also heard loud banging noises, which sounds as though the parent may be kicking or throwing objects around. I’m losing sleep just thinking about it. It makes me sad and upset seeing the boy treated like this.
