The ChildLine Schools Service - Protecting a Generation
The ChildLine Schools Service is a ground-breaking service that aims to visit all primary schools in the UK once every two years to talk to children about abuse, how to protect themselves and where to get help if they need it.
Through age appropriate assemblies and workshops, specially trained volunteers help children to understand abuse in all its forms - including bullying. By giving children the knowledge and confidence to speak out we hope to start a societal change that will bring about a long term reduction in child cruelty.
The ‘Now I know’ appeal supports the ChildLine Schools Service by raising vital funds to recruit and train local volunteers. The appeal aims to raise £20 million to ensure that children can say ‘Now I know’ and not ‘I wish I had known’.
