The NSPCC, correctly known as the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children is the UK's leading charity (http://www.charity-commission.gov.uk/registeredcharities/showcharity.asp?remchar=&chyno=216401) specialising in child protection and the prevention of cruelty to children. It has been active since 1884 and was founded by Angela Georgina Burdett-Coutts.
It has been offered royal patronage but has always declined in order to keep its identity clearly separate from the similarly named RSPCA ( Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
