Full Time
The NSPCC schools service aims to reach and protect every primary school child (4 - 11 years old) and empower school communities to fight for every childhood. And we want you to join us.

In the average primary school class, at least two children have suffered abuse or neglect.

But thanks to our dedicated volunteers, who visit schools in the local area, we can give those children the confidence to speak out.

You too can change lives by delivering the assemblies and workshops we call Speak Out, Stay Safe . And the sooner you volunteer; the sooner you can make a difference.

Once you're trained, you;ll be able to empower the children and young people in your community. Giving them knowledge that will help them stay safe from abuse and neglect.

Interested? Then take a life-changing step forward - for you and for children.

"The children we speak to are actually safer for it. That's an amazing feeling." - Ramon, Schools Service Volunteer.

We are looking for committed people who can:
  • Visit 2 schools per month (term time only)
  • Build relationships with schools in your local community to talk about how the NSPCC can help teachers, parents and carers to keep their children safe, and how they can fund raise to help support our work.
  • You will need to be a confident and proactive individual, who has a sensitive and supportive nature, and can effectively communicate and engage with children.
  • Volunteer in the role for a minimum of one year following training
  • You will go through a two-day workshop, where you will learn how to deliver our Speak Out, Stay Safe programme, how to safeguard children and children's rights.

All our volunteers are provided with ongoing support and coaching throughout the year. Volunteers will ideally have their own transport and will receive out of pocket expenses.
