Our approach to what we do
The NSPCC is inspired by a belief that we can make a difference for all children. That's why we aim to end cruelty to children in the UK. Even if it takes many generations to realise it, we achieve much more for children by having this inspirational vision.
The way we work
The NSPCC needs to deliver the biggest impact it can, but our limited resources are only a fraction of the government and voluntary sector's budget for children.
So all of our service, advice, support, campaigning and education activities are driven by these four principles:
When we have an idea we think will reduce harm to children, we test it. We measure it carefully to ensure that it works. If it does we tell others, in order to make sure that these new ideas and services are taken up by them to help other children.
The NSPCC's local services will concentrate on seven important issues and groups of children most at risk:
Putting it into practice
When we have an idea to reduce harm to children, we will test it. We'll measure it to ensure it works. If it does, we'll do everything we can to make sure that these new ideas and services are taken up to help other children.
To help end cruelty to children in the UK we:
- create and deliver the services that are most effective at protecting children
- provide advice and support for adults and professionals worried about a child
- work with organisations to ensure they effectively protect children - and challenge those who do not
- campaign for changes to legislation, policy and practice in order to keep children safe.
