Empower a generation of children to speak out and stay safe from abuse. 

Last year our Speak Out Stay Safe volunteers gave 1.6 million children the skills and understanding they need to speak out and stay safe against abuse. But there are still many more children who need our help.

Your support can help us in our mission to reach every child, helping them to recognise abuse and ask for help when they feel something is wrong.

About Speak Out Stay Safe

The Speak out Stay safe assembly helps children understand about different types of abuse so that they can get help if or when they need it. This includes talking about neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and bullying.

The assembly helps children to identify a trusted adult they can speak to if they are worried about themselves or a friend. They also learn about Childline, and how the service can support them.

During the workshops, children in Years 5-6 (Primary 6-7) explore the definitions of abuse in greater depth. They take part in engaging exercises, including looking at different scenarios and deciding whether they are OK or not OK.

How you can support us

We believe it's important that our Speak out Stay safe programme is available to every primary school at no cost to the school.

As a charity we can only do this thanks to our many generous supporters and amazing volunteers.

We can build in a number of exciting fundraising activities for schools into the programme.

If your school would like to do this, we’d love to discuss the many ways that we can help with fundraising to keep even more children safe.
