Fighting for childhood in England How we're standing up for children


We stand up for children in England by finding the best ways to prevent abuse and neglect and influencing the Westminster government to take action.

We're committed to finding out what’s working and – more importantly – what isn’t, and what we can do about it. We do this by evaluating the services we provide for children and families and conducting research.

Our findings show that the range of support available to children in England who have been affected by abuse or neglect needs to be improved and we’ll be working with the government and partner agencies to achieve this.


England consultation responses

Our policy team in England respond to government consultations and write briefings to influence the development of policies and laws that affect children and young people. Below are the most recent government consultations we've responded to.

Services for children and families in England

We also provide help and support through the NSPCC helpline, Childline and our work with schools.
