NSPCC in Great Cornard

 

NSPCC in Gt. Cornard

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is the UK’s leading charity specialising in child protection. Our purpose is to end cruelty to children – FULL STOP.

 

We operate 180 community-based projects in the UK. For example in Ipswich we run the Suffolk Child Protection team which offers a range of therapeutic and community group work to children and young people who have suffered significant harm or trauma as a result of abuse or neglect.

 

In February 2006 ChildLine joined the NSPCC. This free and confidential 24-hour helpline is for children in distress or danger.  Trained volunteer counsellors comfort, advise and protect children and young people who may feel they have nowhere else to turn.  We also run a Child Protection Helpline (0808 800 5000) for anyone who has concerns about a child or needs help or advice.

 

All these services and many more like them rely on voluntary donations to keep running. NSPCC supporters provide 85% of the charity’s income and if their support dried up we would be forced to close our doors in six months. We depend on our volunteers for fundraising and support and to be our representatives in the community. Volunteers and branches are located throughout Suffolk and you can get involved in a variety of ways – from national fundraising initiatives like Stop for Tea parties or a Big Bike Ride to smaller local events like sponsored walks, coffee mornings and quizzes.

 

For more information about supporting the NSPCC in Great Cornard and the surrounding area please contact Sarah Hands, Community Fundraising Manager, on 07711 460237.
