The National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children Charity (NSPCC) aims to change society and bring about an end to cruelty to children, in turn creating an environment where all children are valued and able to fulfil their true potential. The NSPCC seek to protect abused children and those in danger of being abused including developing programmes to help rescue and protect vulnerable children. The NSPCC is reponsible for running the Child Protection Helpline and ChildLine in the UK and Channel Islands as well as managing many other community-based projects.
Most of the work of the NSPCC is directly with children, young people and their families but they have a wider directive in seeking to achieve cultural, social and political change by influencing legislation, public attitudes and behaviours with the end goal of benefitting young people.
ChildLine is the most well known of the services provided by the NSPCC and is key to providing support for children in distress or danger 24 hours a day.

The National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children Charity raises money to bring about an end to cruelty to children by providing a number of key services aimed at children, young people and their families:
NSPCC Helpline – free and confidential way for public to protect a child
ChildLine – 24 hour helpline for children in distress or danger
Treatment and Therapeutic Services – helps to heal the psychological and emotional abuse suffered by the most vulnerable children
Domestic Violence Prevention – working to restore healthy domestic relationships
