Make a dif­fer­ence to chil­dren’s lives

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views - Des Man­nion Head of NSPCC Cymru/ Wales

IT’S that time of the year again, with chil­dren get­ting ready to go back to school after the long sum­mer break.

It won’t just be pupils and staff pre­par­ing to re­turn though. Our ded­i­cated team of NSPCC ‘Speak Out Stay Safe’ vol­un­teers will be get­ting ready to visit every pri­mary school across Wales.

Speak Out Stay Safe is an in­no­va­tive ser­vice de­liv­ered to chil­dren via spe­cial assem­blies which warn chil­dren in an age-ap­pro­pri­ate way about the dan­gers of abuse and where they can get help – in­clud­ing from Child­line.

Hope­fully by reach­ing as many chil­dren as we can we’ll give young peo­ple the tools to pro­tect them­selves from all forms of abuse.

To do this though, we need your help.

We are appealing for more vol­un­teers to sup­port our pro­gramme in schools and help pro­tect the next gen­er­a­tion from harm.

Vol­un­teer­ing is a fan­tas­tic way to give some­thing back whilst also learn­ing new skills and meet­ing new peo­ple.

With a min­i­mum com­mit­ment of three morn­ing or af­ter­noon school vis­its a month, you can make a big dif­fer­ence to many chil­dren’s lives.
