Being part of NSPCC

Volunteer with us to

positive change

Every childhood is precious. And we believe everyone has a part to play in keeping children safe. That’s where you’d come in. Our volunteers are the beating heart of the NSPCC. Without them, we can’t help many children and young people who need us.

childline volunteer

The difference you’ll make on Childline

You'll be there for young people when they feel they have no one else to turn to, ideally by giving a regular shift of up to 4 hours each week at one of our 13 bases across the UK.

Our trained volunteer counsellors listen and respond to young people who have got in touch via phone, online chat or email. Our counsellors support young people whatever is worrying them, whether it’s bullying, abuse, self-harm or family relationships.

The difference you’ll make in Schools

Play a vital role in protecting a generation of children, by helping them understand abuse and giving them the confidence to speak out if they need help.

Two children in the average primary school class have suffered abuse or neglect. That's why we aim to reach every primary school in the UK. But we need your help.

As one of our trained Speak Out Stay Safe volunteers you'll play a vital role in protecting a generation of children, by helping them understand abuse and giving them the confidence to speak out if they need help.

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.

event volunteer

The difference you’ll make in community fundraising and events

Whether you are making new friends cheering on runners at a challenge event, or holding or supporting a local event like a ball or quiz, your time and effort helps save lives and build better futures for young people.

Join the thousands of people across the UK and Channel Islands helping raise the money that enables us to protect children and prevent abuse.
