National Support Organisations
Ann Craft Trust
As a leading authority in safeguarding disabled children and adults from abuse, the Ann Craft Trust want to live in a world where people live safely, free from the risk of abuse.
Through pioneering training, practice reviews and contributing to world-leading research, they support organisations to safeguard disabled children and adults at risk and minimise the risk of harm.
Their work is dedicated to key issues affecting disabled children and adults at risk including forced marriage, financial abuse, sexual exploitation and disability hate crime.
The Ann Craft Trust
Centre for Social Work,
1 in 5 children in the UK have suffered abuse or neglect. That's why, across the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, The NSPCC are working to protect children today and prevent abuse from happening tomorrow.
But they can't reach every child without your help.
Their 'Every Day' campaign shows the amazing difference we can make together – real stories told by real NSPCC practitioners and volunteers about the children and families they've worked with and the life-changing impact they've seen.
Child Protection in Sport Unit
The Unit was founded in 2001 to work with UK Sports Councils, National Governing Bodies (NGBs), County Sports Partnerships (CSPs) and other organisations to help them minimise the risk of child abuse during sporting activities.
This followed a series of high profile cases of abuse of young athletes by those in positions of trust such as coaches in the sports.
