Childline volunteers needed

Have your say

ChildLine is asking volunteers in Angus and Dundee to go back to the classroom to help deliver an exciting new schools service to young people.

The children’s charity has launched a new service for primary age children and needs volunteers to deliver group presentations and workshops in schools across the region.

The ChildLine Schools Service is aimed at primary age children, particularly focusing on seven to 11 year olds, and aims to help them understand what abuse is, how to protect themselves and how to seek help if they need it – including through ChildLine.

Working in partnership with the local authority, the service will be delivered to primary six and seven pupils.

Kate Gair, area coordinator for the Schools Service in Angus and Dundee, said: “Volunteers are vital to the success of this new ChildLine service. This is a great opportunity for people to do something to help protect and educate children.

“We believe that teaching children about how to recognise abuse and where to get help will be easiest in a school setting and we need members of the local community to help us do so.”

Applications close on November 30.
