A Glasgow cycling social enterprise hosted its first NSPCC workshops as part of a campaign to teach adults how to keep children safe.

The event held at Bike for Good's Finnieston premises on March 6 involved staff and volunteers as part of the NSPCC’s Listen up, Speak up initiative.

The campaign urged adults to speak up if they are concerned that a child may be at risk of abuse.

Euan Graham, local campaigns officer for Scotland, delivered the session and plans to deliver more throughout the year.

Mr Graham said: "Speaking up about your concerns can make a massive difference when it comes to keeping children safe but it’s not always an easy thing to do.

"These workshops are designed to help people feel more confident about how to describe a situation that they are concerned about and prepare themselves on how to respond and what action they could take to help support a family and help keep a child safe.

“We believe everyone can play a part in keeping children safe and our workshops aim to provide the knowledge and tools to enable people to do something if they are worried that a child is at risk.”

The workshops aim to equip participants with knowledge on spotting warning signs of child abuse, initiating difficult conversations, and who to contact if they are concerned about a child or their family.

The workshops are offered for free in a face-to-face session which lasts an hour and people can also complete a 10 minute digital training session online.

Brogan Sinclair, finance and HR manager at Bike for Good, said: "The workshop was excellent. It was a really easy way to get the topic on the table, open the conversation, and learn how we can all play our part in child protection.

“I had heard of the NSPCC’s Childline service but not the Helpline which is there for adults who may be concerned about a child. It’s a very reassuring resource that we can all access.

“At Bike for Good we have a lot of interaction with families daily and we feel it’s part of our responsibility to equip ourselves with the knowledge we need to support families when we can.”
