Investment Sense is pleased to announce their support for the Nottingham Post’s Business Challenge to raise money for the NSPCC Child’s Voice Appeal.

Why are we supporting the Child’s Voice Appeal?

The ChildLine service receives thousands of calls from children and young people in distress wanting to talk about a problem they face.  In addition to this, caring adults can call the NSPCC Helpline if they are worried about a child’s safety.  The support and advice received calms fears, solves problems and, in the most extreme cases, even saves lives.

Imagine for a moment how difficult it is for an abused child to summon up the courage to speak out against their abuser and then imagine how they must feel if their call goes unanswered.  The East Midlands ChildLine base answered over 7,000 calls in 2009/10 yet sadly, due to lack of resources, there were still many calls left unanswered and every missed call could put a child in more danger.

We want to help ensure that every child receives the help they need which is why we have joined the Child’s Voice Appeal.  The Appeal aims to expand both helplines by funding more counsellors to answer more calls.  The money raised so far has also allowed the NSPCC to develop ChildLine to enable children to make contact through email, message boards and online one-to-one chats.

How you can help

The fundraising will take place over a three month period and we will be running many exciting events for this very worthy cause.

You can help by attending the events and sponsoring our team in the various challenges that they will undertake.

Details of events will be announced in due course.
