Help pupils speak out and stay safe
Last year was a great year for the NSPCC school service.
My volunteers and I reached more primary school children than ever before during our workshops and assemblies- helping to keep them safe from abuse and empowering them to speak out about any worries they may have.
Last year, we spoke with more than 4,791 children in Cambridgeshire through 64 school visits.
Now the new term has started, my team and I are looking forward to talking to even more children aged between four and 11, but we need your help.
The ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ programme is enormously important as it gives children the language and confidence they need to talk about their worries, and the knowledge they need to keep themselves safe.
I can’t do that without the help of volunteers. Can you help?
Volunteering is a fantastic way to give something back whilst also learning newskills and meeting new people.
The NSPCC, a nd our friendly team of volunteers, give you all the training and support you need to feel confident in your role.
With a minimum commitment of as little as three mornings or afternoon visits a month, you can make a big difference to children.
