Local business recruits volunteers to help charity drive down child cruelty

A midlands based supply teaching agency is teaming up with the NSPCC to help recruit volunteers for a new campaign to be rolled out across primary schools in the region.

Aspire People, an education and supply teaching agency in Sutton Coldfield is working hard this term to help the NSPCC's ChildLine find volunteers for their new Schools Service campaign.

Director and owner of Aspire People said: "ChildLine's West Midlands Schools Service need to recruit 50 volunteers throughout Stoke, Staffordshire and Birmingham by December. Volunteers will be delivering assemblies and workshops to primary school children. We will be working with the charity to help recruit these volunteers, completely free of charge. We will then do everything we can to promote the campaign to all of the schools that work with Aspire People, again free of charge. When it comes to safeguarding children you can not put a price on that."

Most of the children that contact ChildLine for advice are over 11 years old, however a large majority of children on the child protection register are under the age of 11. ChildLine's Schools Service is focusing on communicating to primary school children, particularly on 7-11 year olds.

The ChildLine Schools Service involves an assembly covering definitions of abuse, places to go for help and an introduction to ChildLine. A couple of weeks later the primary school will receive an interactive classroom-based workshop to reinforce the messages given in the assembly.

ChildLine's aim is to visit every primary school in the UK, at least every two years to start a long-term reduction in child cruelty. To take part in the crusade to drive down child cruelty head to www.nspcc.org.ukfor more information.
