We've made significant changes to tighten our procedures and protect our supporters
You may have seen the data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), today published its findings following an investigation into historic fundraising practices in the charity sector. It included findings about the NSPCC's practices.
The NSPCC is disappointed the ICO has decided to fine us £12,000. But we're very grateful to a small group of friends of the charity who have offered to pay it so that supporters can be confident that not a penny of their donations will be diverted from our fight for every childhood.
Around 90% of donations that provide vital services in our fight for every childhood come from you, our generous supporters. And we fiercely protect the trust you place in us to responsibly use your donations and personal information.
If it turns out that any supporter has been affected by the specific, unintentional failings identified, then of course we apologise.
