NSPCC volunteers have been at the National Eisteddfod of Wales this week hoping to inspire new faces to get involved with the charity.

The volunteers will be at the Eisteddfod in Llanrwst until Saturday, giving visitors the opportunity to find out about the leading children's charity and the roles available in both Welsh and English.

A number of opportunities have arisen for volunteers to help in a variety of areas, such as visiting schools to deliver the 'Speak Out, Stay Safe' assemblies or listening to the concerns of children and young people through Childline, at its Prestatyn and Cardiff bases.

Des Mannion, head of NSPCC Cymru/Wales, has praised volunteers for their efforts.

“Our volunteers do amazing work with us and without them, we would not be able to fight for every childhood in Wales.

“The best way to find out about joining us is to speak to current volunteers about their roles and learn how they support children and young people and help keep them safe.”

Debs Davis, Childline service manager, added: “While the subject matter can sometimes be challenging, our volunteers see their roles as incredibly rewarding and know that they could be making a difference in the life of a child or young person.

“We have volunteering roles available right across Wales – from Conwy to Cardiff – and importantly in both Welsh and English."
