  • NSPCC Listen Up, Speak Up campaign - How to get involved

    Created: 29/01/2024
    News/Events Category: Children and Families

    Next month, the NSPCC is launching its Listen Up, Speak Up campaign nationally – aimed at empowering everyone to know that to do if they are ever worried about a child or family – and they are offering third sector organisations free online training and in-person workshops. 

    About the campaign 

    It’s up to all of us to help keep children safe, so Listen Up, Speak Up is for people who may not work with children or families, but might encounter them regularly- either through their work or personal lives.  

    When we all listen up and speak up for the people around us, we can make sure that children always come first. It might mean stepping in to help juggle childcare, providing a listening ear to a struggling teen, or calling the NSPCC Helpline if you think a child is at risk

    How to get involved 

    There are two ways to get involved and they're both free.

    1. 10-minute digital training

    NSPCC is encouraging every adult in the UK to take the training to learn how to listen up and speak up for children. They will show you: 

    • Some signs a child might be at risk, and steps you can take to help
    • How to approach difficult conversations to help keep children safe
    • Who you can contact if you’re ever concerned about a child or their family

      2. Host a workshop 

    NSPCC can deliver an hour-long workshop at your workplace, school, club or community group. These are completely free of charge and will be delivered from February 2024 onwards. Anyone aged 18+ is welcome to attend.

    To book a workshop please e-mail [email protected]
