Volunteer for NSPCC Schools Service

Become a volunteer and help children speak out and stay safe.

Help children speak out and stay safe

Our Speak out Stay safe programme is protecting a generation of children against abuse one primary school at a time. And we want you to join us.

As our volunteer, you'll visit local schools giving assemblies to children aged 4-11 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.

By delivering our programme to at least two schools a month, you'll be making a massive difference, helping us fight for every childhood in your local school's community. 

It's why we're here and we couldn't do it without you.

How to play your part

You'll need to be available for:

  • a 3 hour interview
  • 2 school visits a month (during term time)
  • our first class e-learning training module
  • a 2-day training workshop.

You'll need to be the kind of person who:

  • believes in the empowerment and protection of all children
  • has the confidence to speak in front of a group of primary school children
  • can communicate and engage with children
  • has basic IT skills and regular access to email.

''I help to deliver assemblies and workshops and thoroughly enjoy my volunteering work for the Speak out Stay safe programme. It’s great and very satisfying to know that we're getting the message across to children that they don’t have to deal with anything on their own.''
