Will you help children who don't have a voice?

Some children are desperate for help. Support the NSPCC helpline and help us stop children suffering in silence. 

Every day we receive hundreds of calls about the welfare of children who can't speak up for themselves. We need to be there 24/7 to answer your calls and take the action needed to stop abuse. But right now, it's not something we can guarantee. 

A missed call could mean children who are too young or afraid to report abuse, or too scared that they'll get someone they love into trouble will continue to suffer. It could be the difference between a life saved or a child continuing to suffer.

It costs £5 to answer each call, please help us to be there for more children - because your donation really can turn a child's life around.


Every call is a chance to stop abuse

We're receiving more calls about neglect than ever before. When an adult decides to speak up on behalf of a child, their concerns must be heard.

Delia* was one such caller. She contacted the helpline to speak up on behalf of 2 young boys that she knew were sometimes left alone all day, in a bitterly cold house without any food.

If her call hadn't been answered, the boys may have never been saved from the abuse they were suffering. You can read Delia's story in full.

We need to make sure trained Practitioners are always available to take calls and take the appropriate action needed to make that child safe. But we need your help.
