The NSPCC is the leading children’s charity fighting to end child abuse in the UK.
Its teams help children who have been abused to rebuild their lives, protect those at risk, and find the best ways of preventing abuse from ever happening.
When a child needs a helping hand, they will be there. When parents are finding it tough, they will help. When laws need to change, or governments need to do more, they won’t give up until things improve.
So what can you do to support them?
It’s simple – you just need to shout about it!
Volunteer at one of the NSPCC Cheer points and support the charity’s sponsored fundraisers in events like the London Marathon. Cheerers make a massive difference, keeping runners and triathletes going to the finish line.

All you have to do is join in and shout, wave and clap to let them know their chosen charity is with them all the way.
The more noise you make to support as many of them to the finish line, the more money is raised to support this vital work.
One London Marathon runner said: “The NSPCC cheering points really gave you a lift and kept you going.”
Cheer points are set up around the event course – guaranteeing a great view, and making it easy for participants to spot you.
So if you believe every childhood is worth fighting for, make your voice heard.
You’ll enjoy some major events and meet some great people along the way.
