We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

NSPCC School Service Volunteer

  • VO62112


Description

The NSPCC Schools Service aims to reach and protect every primary school child between 4 and 11 years old and empower school communities to fight for every childhood.

As our volunteer, you'll visit local schools giving assemblies to children aged 4-11 and classroom workshops to 9-11 year olds. You'll help them to understand abuse. And give them the confidence and courage to speak out and seek help if they ever need it.

By delivering our programme to at least two schools a month, you'll be making a massive difference, helping us fight for every childhood in your local school's community.
