Our volunteer speakers are part of a network of trained school speakers who are committed to visiting schools and giving talks about animal welfare and our work. They're often retired teachers or our staff, including inspectors. They're passionate about education and animal welfare, and know the best ways to inspire children about the importance of kindness to animals.
A talk in school assemblies from an RSPCA volunteer can help get the whole school involved in learning about animal welfare.
The talk delivered will focus on key animal welfare issues, such a understanding the five aninmal welfare needs, as well as exploring the work of the RSPCA and our mission.
Animal welfare issues often arise because people don't know the best ways to look after different kinds of pets. That's why we want to extend this programme to include more focused talks and training sessions, based on specific animals.
