NSPCC HELPLINE PRESENTATIONS AND FUNDRAISING BIKE RIDE TO LIVERPOOL

As calls to the NSPCC Helpline reporting suspected child abuse and neglect have reached record levels, the NSPCC in Salford is offering free presentations about its Helpline work to local companies, community groups and organisations that are keen to learn more about how they can help safeguard and protect children and young people.

Meanwhile, on Sunday 29th May there's a bike ride from Salford to Liverpool to raise money for ChildLine and the Helpline.

HIGHEST EVER CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT REFERRALS BY NSPCC

Last year, trained NSPCC counsellors working on the 24-hour freephone (0808 800 5000) service referred 16,385 serious cases to police or social services. This is 37%  higher than the previous year and the biggest annual increase in referrals to the Helpline yet recorded.

Almost half (46%) the people who contacted the Helpline last year were reporting concerns so serious they needed to be passed on to the authorities - up from 39 per cent the previous year. Cases included physical, sexual and emotional abuse, and neglect - the biggest reason why people contact the Helpline which recorded an 81% increase in referrals.

Now Salford has been chosen as a pilot area to launch a new NSPCC Helpline scheme where trained volunteer awareness campaigners will be deliver presentations to raise awareness of child protection and the NSPCC Helpline.

The presentations only last around twenty minutes and can be tailored to suit any organisation or community group.

"Our Helpline staff and our volunteer Awareness Campaigners are passionate ambassadors for the NSPCC and are keen to tell the local community about the NSPCC Helpline and how we can help protect more children and young people" says Cathy Sames, NSPCC volunteer co-ordinator "This informal talk and presentation may be of particular interest if you work with children or young people; have a personal interest in the safeguarding and protection of children; or if this is an important concern to your community group."

"Sadly many adults are unaware of the Helpline and how it works to protect children around the UK" Cathy adds "Our project provides an opportunity for people in Salford to book a presentation and meet our staff and volunteers face-to-face. By getting out in to the local community, we really believe it could make a real difference to the safety and protection of children."

Anyone wanting to book a free NSPCC Helpline presentation can contact Cathy Sames on 0161 743 4679 or csames@nspcc.org.uk

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
