NSPCC ChildLine Schools Service Appeal

The NSPCC is calling on parents across West Berkshire to support its ChildLine Schools Service which aims to visit all primary schools in the county to talk to children about abuse and where to get help if they need it.
The assemblies and workshop sessions are tailored for 9-11 year olds, with topics being covered in an age appropriate, easy to understand format. Feedback from schools that have already received the Service has been extremely positive.
NSPCC research shows that, on average, at least two children in every primary classroom will have suffered some form of abuse or neglect. The charity also says that the majority of children who contact its helpline are aged over 11 and often talk about abuse that happened months or even years earlier.
NSPCC fundraising manager, Fiona Turner said; “Imagine a generation of children who have the knowledge to prevent abuse – we believe it’s possible. With your support, we can make it happen, one primary school at a time.The ChildLine Schools Service will give children the knowledge to prevent abuse from happening and we really hope that parents in West Berkshire will get behind our appeal.”
Fiona continued; “There are so many ways that people can get involved, and whether you’re an individual, part of a group or a local business, we would love to hear from you. We can give you plenty of support with any fundraising and provide you with all the materials you need to get started so please get involved and help us to protect a generation of local children.”
