NSPCC Scotland is a respected and trusted member of the charity sector, particularly in high-value relationships.

In Scotland, we run the world famous Childline service, through two bases in Glasgow and Aberdeen, which gives children someone to talk to for free, at any time of the day or night while regularly saving young lives. Our grassroots early intervention and prevention work delivered through our Speak Out. Stay Safe programme talks to primary school children about how to keep safe, seeing over 160,000 children in Scotland last year alone. We also work directly with families through our early intervention and prevention centre in Govan, focussing on infant mental health.

We create innovative and rigorously tested child protection services that help to keep at-risk children safe across the country. Our research, notably our annual “How Safe are our Children?” report, informs both the charity sector and the Government on the state of child protection in the UK each year.

NSPCC Scotland’s mission is to end abuse and neglect, and now, as we are about to embark on an exciting new 10-year strategy and with Childline having been around for a generation of children, there has never been a more exciting or motivating time to be part of our fundraising team.

The Scotland major giving team is responsible for maximising the lifetime value of all new and existing relationships with individual and institutional (trusts, foundations and statutory) donors capable of giving major gifts in Scotland. Gifts over 1k fall into our High Value space at NSPCC Scotland.
