The NSPCC have launched a new campaign called Listen Up Speak Up which aims to empower our community to identify signs of child neglect or abuse, and provide helpful information about how to raise concerns with someone who can help.
As part of the campaign, they are encouraging every adult to take their free 10-minute online course ‘Connect the DOTS’. This will show you where to go if you need support and how to speak up for children who need it because a little bit of knowledge can help keep a lot of children safe. For more information and to sign up and take the training, go to the NSPCC website.
** Please note that the Connect the DOTS training is NOT the safeguarding training required for people working or volunteering with children. For more information on training for professionals, visit our training page.
