Our partnership work aims to protect young people in Greater Manchester through education and by encouraging young people to keep themselves safe.
Following evaluation of last year’s summer campaign, we will focus on the following main objectives:
Keeping our communities, including young people, safe around water and educate them about water safety
Reduce incidents of anti-social behaviour, by offering young people in Greater Manchester the opportunity to experience fun and exciting activities in their local areas
Encourage people to take responsibility for their actions and assist with education around summer safety messages
Reduce incidents of deliberately set fires
Reduce the number of hoax calls to emergency services
Reassure local communities that the partnership is committed to working together to tackle anti-social behaviour
