This year’s National Child Safety week, held from June 22 until June 28, will see Bolton Council focus on the ways to keep the boroughs young people as safe as possible.
Nationally, two million young people a year are harmed in accidents, many of which could be prevented. That’s why the council is putting children’s safety high the agenda.
There will be sessions taking place in the borough’s children’s centres throughout Child Safety Week with advice and support on all kinds of issues. The events will be hosted by members of Bolton’s Safeguarding Board, which includes the council, the Fire Service, NHS Bolton and the Police Service.
Councillor Ebrahim Adia, Executive Member for Children’s Services at Bolton Council, said: “Child safety is of paramount importance to any parent, and I hope that Bolton’s mums and dads use Child Safety week as an opportunity to make sure that they are keeping their children as far from danger as possible.
“Even the most careful and responsible parent can benefit from professional advice and information, which these sessions will provide.”
