The NSPCC was established in 1884 with the aim of protecting children from cruelty, providing vulnerable families with support, raising awareness about abuse and campaigning for changes in the law.

The NSPCC offers advice to parents and carers on protecting children at home; resources and advice for teachers; and support for vulnerable children, including Childline.


ChildLine is a service provided by the NSPCC, operated by trained volunteer counsellors. It is the UK's free, 24-hour helpline for children in distress or danger.

Children can call the helpline for support:

  • 0800 11 11


Another support service provided by the NSPCC is There 4 Me. Using this website, children can talk confidentially to NSPCC advisors online about any issues or problems they may be experiencing, using an application similar to Instant Messenger (IM).


Adults can speak to the Samaritans - the Samaritans provide confidential, emotional support for people who are in emotional distress. If you are worried and want to talk to someone you can contact the Samaritans by phone or email.
