Safeguarding Practitioner Forums in Bolton

Keeping up to date with what’s going on in safeguarding children is essential, but in the busy work environment it can be a challenge.  That’s why in each of Bolton’s three areas – North, West and South a regular practitioner’s forum is hosted. Each of the forums run about once a term and offer an opportunity for practitioners from all agencies working directly and indirectly with children and their families to come together, develop their networks and their knowledge about what’s happening  locally, regionally and nationally to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
