BBC Script.Chelsea: Hello and welcome to BBC London news. Today’s headline is “NSPCC pressure groups react once again.” In London at this very moment a group of people are out side the houses of parliaments protesting about the way the government look at child abuse. Today we have the chairman of the NSPCC. Mark Wood.(Sajan walks on stage) Thank you for joining us today Mr.Wood. So please can you tell us a little bit about what your group is aiming at by doing the protest today?Sajan: Well we are aiming to get our message across to the government which is to get more involved with the NSPCC to stop what happened to baby p to any other child out there.Chelsea: What is the message you want everyone to know?Sajan: Well we want people if they hear odd noises from people next door then to try and find out whats going on, or if they suspect that something wrong or odd is happening to any child then they should report it before anything bad happens.Chelsea: Well that understandable. Who are you targeting to from the protest today?Sajan: Well over all out target audience is to all people mainly mothers and fathers and from today the people of the government because they have the power to stop child abuse.Chelsea: Before you decided that the protest was the last resort what other strategy’s for your campaigns have you done?Sajan: We have done leaflets to try and open people’s eyes about the whole topic, we have done T.V commercials to appeal to a wider audience. We have also sent email and texts with our web address to help and also if people felt that they could not talk to the police we also set up a helpline for them to call in anonymously so we could look into their complaint. But as you said some of strategy’s did work but not as much as we thought so we done the protest to get the support of the government.Chelsea: Finally what is your success so far?Sajan: Well since we started this whole thing up the number of children who have been through cruelty the numbers have gone down. But the numbers are still high.

This is Ryan. So Ryan, can you update us on what’s happened so far?Ryan: Well we have had one person come out saying they do listen but they are not the ones who are supposed to help. But they said they try their best and as a group we all decided that was not good enough so we are carrying on the protest until we get better options.Saujanya: Ok well that’s good. Can you tell us a little about the background of the NSPCC pressure group?Ryan: Well our Grandfathers set up the pressure group about 20 to 30 years after the NSPCC started up which was in 1884.
