Eisteddfod visitors invited to check out NSPCC Cymru stand

VISITORS to the Eisteddfod Yr Urdd are being urged to visit NSPCC Cymru’s stand next week to find out more about the vital services the charity provides in Wales.

Teams will be on the Maes at Meifod, Powys throughout the week to answer questions, organise events and highlight opportunities for people to get involved in volunteering.

Presenters from S4C’s children’s programme, Cyw, will visit on Monday and Wednesday to read the NSPCC’s book Pantosaurus and the Power of PANTS to young children. 

The book is based on the charity’s Talk PANTS campaign and features the NSPCC’s friendly dinosaur Pantosaurus who teaches parents and children about how to stay safe. 

Talk PANTS helps children to recognise what abuse is and how they can speak up if anything does not feel right. The campaign is aimed at parents and carers of children between three- and eight-years-old, providing adults advice on how to talk to children in an age-appropriate way about sexual abuse.  

There will also be a focus on the Listen up Speak up campaign which offers free online or face-to-face training to help adults recognise when something might be wrong, and what they could do to help.

The sessions and the 10-minute digital training course are available in Welsh and English and are to open businesses, organisations, schools, and community groups.

The NSPCC will also be encouraging visitors to take part in its annual Childhood Day, the charity’s annual day of fundraising and action, taking place on Friday, June 7. 

Charity collections are taking place in Wrexham and Cardiff on June 8, and children and adults are being encouraged to walk, hop or skip a mile to help raise money for children. 

Carl Harris, Assistant Director for NSPCC Cymru, said: “We are looking forward to this year’s Eisteddfod yr Urdd, which is set to welcome more competitors than ever before.

“We also have a fantastic range of activities on our stand, including information about our Listen up Speak up campaign, volunteering opportunities, Talk PANTS and the Speak out Stay safe programme. 

“I would encourage everyone to visit our stand on the Maes to find out what they can do to help keep children safe.”
