NSPCC Schools Coordinator, Surrey

The NSPCC is searching Surrey for volunteers who are passionate about child protection to join us in our fight for every childhood.

In 2022 the NSPCC’s ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ volunteers will be returning to primary schools in Surrey, helping us to protect a generation of children from abuse and neglect. Volunteers will visit primary schools to deliver ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ workshops to Year 5 and Year 6 children, that teach them about the different types of abuse and who to speak to if they need to.

Our workshops are age-appropriate and memorable and need an energetic and enthusiastic person to deliver them. You’ll work alongside other volunteers to make sure at the end of each session the children feel empowered and know who they can speak out to if they are worried.

When you volunteer with us, you’ll get lots of initial training which includes practice sessions, home-study and multiple visits to schools to help you learn the workshop materials. When you start delivering the sessions, support will be on offer from both your supervisor and other experienced volunteers.

You’ll also get the opportunity to learn new skills, be a part of a friendly team of like-minded people and most importantly make a huge difference to children within your local area.

If you are interested in volunteering as a ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ volunteer and want to find out more about the role, the next step is to contact the Volunteer Recruitment Team at

For this role, we can only accept people over the age of 16. Volunteering takes place on weekdays during school hours and we ask for a minimum commitment of two school visits a month. We look forward to meeting you!
