NSPCC Helpline ~ Report Abuse in Education

"Our new NSPCC helpline, Report Abuse in Education, will launch on 1 April. Working with the Department for Education (DfE), who have commissioned us on this initiative, we will run the bespoke helpline to provide appropriate support and advice to victims of abuse, and concerned adults, including onward action such as contacting the police if they wish to."

This dedicated helpline will offer support to:

  • all children and young people making current and non-recent disclosures of abuse
  • any children or young people who want to talk about being involved or witnessing any incidents
  • any adults who have experienced non-recent abuse
  • parents and carers who have any concerns about their own or other children
  • professionals who work in schools and need support in this or related issues.
