OPP OF THE DAY: Schools Service Volunteer – NSPCC

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. Volunteers usually work in pairs to present prewritten material to Primary school aged children.

Visiting local Primary Schools

Mon-Fri during school hours.

• We ask for an initial commitment of a year because of the cost of recruiting & training volunteers.
• We ask our volunteers to sign up and commit to a minimum of 2 school visits a month – This roughly equates to between 4 and 8 hours a month in a school. It could be a morning or an afternoon at a school. For example, one school visit could equate to two classroom workshops booked 9-10 and 10.30-11.30.
