The NSPCC has agreed to give an annual donation of £1 per NSPCC employee to the Charity Employees Benevolent Fund. The charity has about 1,900 staff, according to its last accounts.

The CEBF, set up to support former and current charity employees facing hard times, will write to all the country’s largest charitable employers asking them to sign up to similar schemes. The think tank New Philanthropy Capital has also agreed to make a regular donation based on employee numbers.

Hilary Greengrass, general manager of the CEBF, said she hoped other large charities would follow the NSPCC’s example.

Andrew Flanagan, chief executive of the NSPCC, said: "Those working in the charity sector do a magnificent job and deserve to be supported in times of hardship. If all charities contribute in just a small way, we can build a decent fund that will provide a lifeline for employees when they most need it."
