If you work or volunteer with children and young people you’re likely to have conversations about difficult or upsetting topics. The NSPCC have provided guidance on how to best talk with children and young people which can be found HERE
Since schools and education settings have closed, referrals to children’s social services have fallen dramatically. With millions of children remaining at home, there is a hidden group of children potentially at risk of abuse or neglect who are having much less interaction with statutory services.
To help protect these children, the NSPCC is receiving £1.6 million of government funding to expand and promote the helpline. The NSPCC are still here for children, and this service is open every day with free support for anyone who’s worried about a child – over the phone, via email or through our online form.
