Volunteer for NSPCC Schools Service Become a volunteer and play your part in protecting children

The NSPCC Schools Service (formerly ChildLine Schools Service) is protecting a generation of children against abuse. One primary school at a time. And we want you to play your part.

As an NSPCC Schools Service volunteer, you'll visit local schools giving assemblies and classroom workshops to 9-11 year olds. You'll help them to understand abuse, and give them the confidence and courage to speak out and seek help if they ever need it.

"I help to deliver half-hour assemblies and 1-hour workshops to 9 to 11 year olds, and thoroughly enjoy my volunteering work for the ChildLine Schools Service. It’s great and very satisfying to know that we are getting the message across to children that they don’t have to deal with anything on their own."
Bernie Riley / NSPCC Schools Service volunteer
