Volunteer for ChildLine Schools Service
Empower children by talking about abuse and ways they can get help
Speak to primary school children as a ChildLine Schools Service volunteer and help them understand issues like abuse and bullying and how to protect themselves.
As part of our ground-breaking service, we need volunteers to be trained to talk pupils in their local area about abuse in all its forms and make them aware of how and where to get support.
