Young people take over the NSPCC

Over 65 young people make their mark on how we fight for every childhood

Invaders Day signYesterday was Invaders' Day, when over 65 young people from across the four nations invaded the NSPCC offices during the school holidays.

On the day, young people travelled to London, Cardiff, Manchester and Belfast to get involved in a host of activities designed to engage with us and gain a greater understanding of what we do

Nicola Helme, Volunteer Development Consultant said: 
“They worked really well together, sharing information and ideas and giving moral support. I forgot they didn’t all know one another by the end! Their work was really insightful and will make a big difference to our successes when involving work experience students in the future.”

" After today I've really had to think about what I actually want to do after college - and I want to do something NSPCC related as you guys are just amazing and are making such life changing differences to many people."

Our work with young people

Invaders' Day is one of the many ways we work with young people to influence our work.

This means that children are at the heart of everything we do, and influence our work across all teams and levels.

Last year, young people helped us with:
