Devon: School Volunteers Needed

Be an NSPCC Schools Service Volunteer


The ground-breaking NSPCC Schools Service (formerly ChildLine Schools Service) uses specially trained volunteers to talk to primary school children about abuse.

They use an assembly or workshop to help under 11s understand abuse and recognise it if it occurs. 

The sessions are tailored to the age range of those in the group, with topics covered in an easy to understand way, without being graphic. 

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. 

How To Play your part You'll need to be available for: 

  • 2 school visits a month (during term time) 
  • 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
