"The only Professional Fundraising Organisation
to include dedicated donor monitoring as part of what we do"
NSPCC have launched an advice line for professionals worried how child protection issues are being handled 0800 028 0285.
The advice line was commissioned by the Home Office as a firm commitment made by Government in its response to failures to protect children from sexual exploitation in Rotherham and the Government's subsequent Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation report.
Peter Wanless, NSPCC Chief Executive, said:
"If an employee thinks a child is in danger or has been failed by their organisation then nothing should stand in the way of them speaking out. Too often people with concerns have kept silent because they have been fearful of the consequences for their jobs, and this can have devastating consequences for the children involved.
"A feature of the child abuse scandals of recent years has been people who said they thought something wasn't right but were unsure whether they could discuss their concerns confidentially outside their organisation. The new whistleblowing advice line is a vital new initiative and will provide a confidential, safe place for anyone who has concerns and wants support or advice."
