NSPCC – Neglect Campaign
The NSPCC-PSCB campaign on neglect will now continue until the end of January 2018, with additional funding secured to widen the reach of our messages across the city. So look out for posters, information on screens, bus stops and other places! We have been briefing professionals (staff and volunteers) on neglect across the VCS and statutory agencies and going along to some community events over the summer to meet children, young people, parents and the wider community to talk informally about the campaign.
We would now really appreciate your support to help us reach groups of parents and other members of the community as we begin to deliver community workshops. These interactive workshops will last about an hour and include activities, discussions and film clips exploring what children want and what they need in order to thrive. The session will look at neglect from a child’s perspective, the causes, signs and impact of neglect and how the whole community can play their part in supporting families to ensure they can meet their children’s basic needs. We will also talk about the local supports and services available to families in Plymouth, including the NSPCC Helpline, and encourage everyone who is concerned about a child to take action by passing on their concerns. Safeguarding really is everyone’s responsibility.
So if you can get a group of adults together for a workshop, please contact Julie Campbell (NSPCC campaigns manager) firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support for our campaign to prevent neglect in Plymouth.
