Worried about a Child?

4 October 2010 No Comment

Facts about the NSPCC Helpline:

  • The NSPCC Helpline has run for 20 years, currently receives five thousand calls a month and has helped well over half a million children to date.
  • Anyone can contact the NSPCC Helpline service free and anonymously on 0808 800 5000 or email help@nspcc.org.uk, 365 days a year, 24/7, to report any worries or concerns about a child being badly treated.
  • The Helpline can give advice on what action callers could take to help a child in future, such as warning signs to look out for and how to get support for their parents or carers.
  • If callers provide identifying information about a child and the NSPCC believes that child is at risk, the Helpline advisor will work with the police or children’s services to ensure that child is protected.
