In 2007, the British Home Office reported that, every ten days in England and Wales one child is killed at the hands of their parent.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Against Children – or NSPCC – has been campaigning against child abuse since 1889, and with your donations it can continue to do so.

The organization works throughout the UK, Jersey and Guernsey to provide support and protection for children in abusive and dangerous situations. Money acquired through public donations and fundraising helps to support their many vital services, such as the telephone advice services ChildLine and the NSPCC Helpline as well as providing counselling services for chidren and young people.

At present and with current funding the NSPCC can only answer two thirds of the 2.3 million calls received from children each year and three quarters of the calls received from adults concerned about the welfare of a child or infants too young to speak for themselves.

With your help, the NSPCC can transform both helplines by 2011 so that they are able to answer more calls for help. Additionally they want to expand and give children a wider range of choices and options to contact them, for example online and they want to roll out these much needed service so they are available throughout the UK.

Their goal is to answer 90 per cent of all calls to ChildLine by 2011; this means provide counselling support for 1.2 million calls and 380,000 online and SMS contacts per year.

How the charity works

It costs the NSPCC £4 to answer one call to Childline, and because of the need for qualified counsellors, it costs £10 to answer a call to the Adult Helpline. Every day, thousands of children and young people call ChildLine to talk about a problem they face. Hundreds of caring adults also call the NSPCC helpline because they are worried about a child’s safety.By making a donation today, you can help the NSPCC be there to answer more calls which could save a child’s life.
