Raise Awareness of ChildLine in Your School

Thursday 8th April 2010

The NSPCC has launched the "how u feelin?" campaign aimed at raising awareness in schools of ChildLine and the new services offered.  The NSPCC wants all young people to know the different ways they can contact ChildLine for help and support, no matter what their worry.  As well as contacting ChildLine by phone, children can now use its online services at www.childline.org.uk - including lots of information, message boards and a problem page. They can also email counsellors, or chat to them online 1-2-1.

The free teaching resources have been designed to encourage young people aged 11–16 to think about how they feel, and who they can turn to if they have any problems or worries. It has strong links to the PSHE/PSE/PD/Health and wellbeing curriculum. A pack for teachers, interactive activity and short video clips are provided online, along with colourful photocopiable activity cards and a PowerPoint presentation.

The resources are part of the wider “How u feelin?” campaign. The NSPCC hope the campaign will encourage young people to explore the ChildLine website, which has many exciting new features and ways to get in touch, so that if they ever have a worry, they know that ChildLine is there for them, by phone and now online. Young people can join in the “How u feelin?” discussion at www.childline.org/howufeelin

School webmasters can add the "how u feelin?" badge linking to the ChildLine site to a school intranet or website. It is easy to do – the code for an animated version of the badge is provided alongside the teacher pack.
