Half a million children a year suffer abuse in the UK.
Children who are being abused are often too afraid to speak out or too young to understand what's happening. Almost 200 worried adults a day call our Helpline about children who desperately need us to protect them.
With a call to our Helpline, the abuse a child is suffering can stop. Together, we can all play our part to keep children safe.
This Childhood Day, 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.
How your donations make an impact
Around 90% of our funding comes from our supporters, helping us reach children across the UK.

Last year the NSPCC Helpline contacted agencies about 22,505 children to investigate abuse and neglect concerns – an average of 62 a day.
