Today, a child is being neglected

They're living in dangerous conditions. Hungry or dirty, without proper clothing, shelter, and protection, or believing they are unworthy of love and affection.

Every child deserves to be loved, cared for and protected. One call to the NSPCC Helpline could stop a lifetime of neglect or abuse. Please, donate now to help answer that call.

My sister is underweight; she’s collapsed a few times. The house is dirty and dangerous. The cupboards are generally empty. We need help quickly as things are getting worse.

How your donations make an impact

Since the start of the pandemic, the Helpline has seen a 23% rise in calls from people worried about a child's safety.

Our Helpline is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Around 90% of our funding comes from our supporters, helping us reach children across the UK.

There are lots of ways you can support our work if you aren't able to donate online.


We've agreed to stick to a strict set of codes and a fundraising promise, which means we treat our supporters and donors with respect, fairness and honesty and we are always clear about how we raise money

80p in every £1 we spend goes directly to helping children and young people. This includes working with children and families, our helplines, schools service and child protection and awareness campaigns like PANTS. Read our Annual Report (PDF).
