Neutrons are non charged particles in nucleus. They are present in order to reduce the repulsive forces between two or more positively charged protons, which are also present in the nucleus. If the neutrons are not present and the nucleus is completely filled with protons only, then there will be repulsive forces between the protons and the nucleus will eventually become unstable.
