About the Charity

NSPCC stands for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, and is a charity that campaigns to aid child protection services throughout the United Kingdom. The charity encourages people to get in touch if they suspect a child to be in danger, at school or their home, or when speaking to a suspicious individual online. However, the NSPCC may be best known for its Childline service, a freephone helpline number where children can receive confidential support regarding any problem they are facing.
