THE NSPCC is the leading charity focused on preventing child cruelty in the UK.

In order to carry out our charitable work, maximise our impact and achieve our strategic aims we must communicate efficiently and effectively with our audiences.

The award-winning NSPCC communications team is known for its talent, expertise and creativity in inspiring and challenging people to act on child abuse.

It is the focus for all press and media work that comes in to the organisation or goes out from it.

It works proactively to generate media coverage for all activities and campaigns, delivers strategic media plans and develops opportunities both proactively and reactively to service a huge array of media/journalists that make contact for comment and information on day-to-day events and upcoming issues.

The team is responsible for developing a comprehensive media approach with a clear strategy including statements and press releases to feature/audio visual material and campaign packs. It also continually monitors and evaluates all media coverage gained.

The NSPCC Press Office team is responsible for all our interactions with the media, be it through printed media, broadcast or digital and across the UK nationally, devolved nations and regionally.

The team will work collaboratively across the NSPCC to develop a strategic NSPCC presence in the public eye, creating a strong media platform for the NSPCC to publicise its work to end cruelty to children.

The remit of the press office is to develop this presence on a national basis but also support locally within the four nations and across the regions.

The Regional and Nations media team is based in different locations around the regions and nations of the UK. It develops specific communications strategies for their own areas linked to the overall functional communications strategy.

In Scotland, the team supports a range of functions, which includes a national centre, service centre and two Childline bases, fundraising, campaigning, Schools Service and policy teams.
