Our work with schools

Find out how our schools service can help your school keep children safe from abuse.

We work with schools around the country to reach as many children as possible and keep them safe

From assemblies and workshops through to specialist resources, lesson plans and training, we help schools safeguard children and give them the confidence to speak out and stay safe.

Together, we can make every school the safest environment for every child.

Speak out Stay safe

Delivered by specially trained staff and volunteers, our Speak out Stay safe assemblies and workshops give children the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse.
