Role and Opportunity Details (to apply for this role you must be 16+).

We are looking for new volunteers from Wigan and the surrounding areas to be Speak out. Stay Safe Volunteers.  You would visit primary schools local to you to help us protect a generation of children from abuse and neglect.

In 2022 the NSPCC’s Speak out. Stay safe volunteers returned to primary schools.  As a Speak out. Stay safe. volunteer, you will visit primary schools to deliver Speak out. Stay safe. workshops that teach children about the different types of abuse and how they can speak out and stay safe. Our Speak out. Stay safe. workshops are age-appropriate and memorable and need an energetic and enthusiastic person to deliver them. You’ll work alongside other Speak out. Stay safe. volunteers to make sure at the end of each session the children feel empowered and know who they can speak out to if they are worried.

In some session’s children may speak up and disclose abuse, so you will also be required to sensitively handle this and report any concerns you have about the child.  But don’t worry you’ll get plenty of support and training on this.
