At the end of a year in which The Independent has campaigned for victims of child abuse to be given a voice, we would like you to support our Victims of Abuse appeal to help children whose lives have been devastated.

Our Christmas appeal is in support of projects run by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, including its helpline, and support to help children who have been abused and to help prevent future abuse.

Countless children's stories involving abuse scandals have never been heard. The NSPCC, Britain's leading charity specialising in child protection, runs more than 120 projects throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland offering counselling and therapy to abused children as well as carrying out investigations into alleged abuse.

The charity relies on donations for 85 per cent of its income. We would like you to contribute by sending your donation with the form above.

Your money will go to help projects such as the NSPCC's freephone helpline which takes an average of 1,200 calls a week; the London Investigation Team which works with police and social services to investigate paedophiles; and the Kaleidoscope project in Newcastle which treats children who have abused others.
