Community safety training

We've created a new training portal to help educate those that are interested in supporting community safety, we've started with Hate Crime. You can now learn more about hate crime and its impact, watch films showing just how hate crime occurs and find out what positive action you can take to prevent and tackle hate crime in Bolton.
