It takes a village to raise a child. And it takes a community to keep children safe.

That’s why we’re encouraging every adult in the UK to take our 10-minute digital training* and learn how to listen up and speak up for children.

Listen up, Speak up will show you: 

  • some signs a child might be at risk, and steps you can take to help
  • how to approach difficult conversations to help keep children safe
  • who you can contact if you’re ever concerned about a child or their family.
