ChildLine appeals for volunteers to visit schools

The children's helpline ChildLine is beginning a new drive to visit every primary school in Wales - and the rest of the UK - to help youngsters understand what abuse is, and how they can stay safe.

It's appealing for volunteers to deliver the message in schools and workshops, as it tries to reach every school by 2016. The Schools Service aims to encourage children to recognise situations where they might need help, and tell them ways of accessing it.
