What we're doing about bullying

Anti-bullying is one of the key priorities for the Children and Young People's Trust (a partnership board for children and young people).

Bullying affects a large number of children and young people and is the most prevalent ill-treatment of all abuses to children. Salford's current anti-bullying strategy, is written to provide a whole authority approach to countering bullying and aims to coordinate the work of all organisations in making Salford a safe place for children.

Worried about a child

The safety and wellbeing of our children and young people is paramount and a key priority for the council.
