NSPCC Scotland is appealing for more volunteers in Renfrewshire to help deliver ‘Speak Out Stay Safe’ assemblies in primary schools.

NSPCC Scotland began the groundbreaking assemblies in Scotland in 2012 and since then its staff and team of dedicated volunteers have spoken to tens of thousands of school children the length and breadth of the country.

Research from the leading children’s charity shows that on average at least two children in every primary school classroom across the UK will have suffered some form of abuse or neglect.

‘Speak Out Stay Safe’ helps ensure children understand what abuse is and know how to keep themselves safe.

In 2017/2018 almost 1,400 primary school pupils across Renfrewshire received the service in 15 schools. Now the service is calling on more volunteers to help keep children safe from abuse.

Susan Brown, NSPCC Scotland schools service coordinator for Renfrewshire said: “It’s so important for children to have a voice, to know who to speak to, and that they shouldn’t stop speaking out until action is taken.

“Our aim is to reach every child in every school across Renfrewshire. If we can get children into the habit of speaking out about their feelings then

they are more likely to speak out against abuse. The aim is to empower children and teach them that our Childline service is always there if they don’t feel able to talk to an adult they know.

“We need volunteers to continue our work and to keep children safe from abuse.”
