Client of the Month - NSPCC
Our Client of the Month for November is the NSPCC, the leading children's charity fighting to end child abuse in the UK and Channel Islands.

The NSPCC helps children who have been abused to rebuild their lives, protect those at risk, and we find the best ways of preventing abuse from ever happening.
We work with families when they're going through difficult times - like battling addiction or overcoming mental health problems. We offer all kinds of support - from helping new parents care for their baby to giving professionals the tools they need to assess neglect. We also visit primary schools, giving children the confidence to speak out and seek help if they ever need it. And we help parents keep their children safe through campaigns like the Underwear Rule and Share Aware.
The NSPCC helpline responded to almost 55,000 contacts from adults concerned about the welfare of a child last year. And a child calls Childline every 25 seconds. Our volunteers have conversations that mean we can protect children in abusive situations by getting them the help they need, when they need it most.
We believe that every childhood is worth fighting for.
If you'd like to support our fight for every childhood, why not get involved with our Little Stars campaign?
Donate £5* to the NSPCC and name a light on Oxford Street for someone special in your life which will sparkle as part of the world famous display.
You can name your light for your little one, to show your mum how much you care, or for that person who deserves a special thank you. Whoever you choose, share that festive glow with a personalised message and light up their Christmas.
So head to https://nspcc-little-stars.org.uk/ and, together, we can make Christmas sparkle for children.
