YOUNG people are now well versed in "speaking out" if they have any concerns.

The NSPCC visited The Gates Primary School in Westhoughton and told youngsters how they should share any worries they have to adults they could trust, such as teachers and those who run clubs such as dancing.

The children also mete "Buddy" a speech bubble who said that it was not okay if a child felt up set.

The charity's outreach told a fictional tale about Sam who was upset about her parent’s arguments and was hungry due to a lack of food or care in the house and how people could help by ringing 0800 1111.
