Bears can sign up for NSPCC workshops

Fans heading to Edgbaston this Sunday will have the chance to sign up for NSPCC anti-bullying and online safety workshops.

NSPCC staff and volunteers will have a stall in the exhibition hall as Birmingham Bears kick off the 2019 Vitality Blast home campaign against Leicestershire Foxes.

The NSPCC is holding a number of workshops in the coming months as part of ongoing work with the Edgbaston Foundation to help keep young people safe online.

Supporters at Edgbaston on Sunday will also be able to get online safety advice on issues such as setting parental controls, and different types of apps and social media platforms, from O2 Gurus – tech experts who work closely with the NSPCC.  

And families will be able to test their online knowledge with the NSPCC’s Parents vs Kids game.

NSPCC Midlands Campaigns Manager Ally Sultana said: “It would be great if supporters could take a few minutes on Sunday to pop and see us – and I’m sure they will find it really beneficial.

“The online world is a major part of modern life, so it is vital that we help parents and carers understand the range of risks that their children face online, and that we ensure young people have the tools and knowledge to protect themselves.”

Ravinder Masih, Head of Community Engagement at Edgbaston, said: “The relationship between the Edgbaston Foundation and the NSPCC is an important way for us to engage with the community and with our supporters. Helping parents and children stay safe online has become ever more important in recent times and we are delighted that the NSPCC is joining us for our first T20 match of the season to support us with this engagement activity.”
