Resources to share details of the Report Abuse in Schools helpline with your school community are now available

The helpline was commissioned by the Department for Education in response to the troubling testimonies of sexual abuse and harassment shared on the Everyone’s Invited website. The helpline provides support to pupils who have experienced abuse at school and parents and teachers who are concerned about sexual abuse in education settings.

The NSPCC is encouraging leaders in schools, colleges and other education settings to share the details of the helpline with pupils, parents and teachers.

“It is absolutely vital that people feel comfortable to raise concerns about child abuse and harassment, including children themselves, and we thank everyone so far who has found the courage to contact the helpline."

Kam Thandi, NSPCC Helpline Head

Since its launch in April this year, the helpline has answered 353 calls. In total, 65 referrals have been made to an external agency such as the police or social services (up to 16 May). For the other contacts, trained helpline staff provided support and guidance.
