Helping a generation of children stay safe
Our Speak out Stay safe programme gives a generation of children the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect.
Pupils are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or to Childline.
Helplines and reporting
