ACT For Youth campaign launch - social media toolkit 

On 28 September, ACT’s Act For Youth campaign launches in partnership with News UK, designed to help educate 11 to 16 year olds on how to stay safe in the event of a firearms or weapon attack. Key advice is to follow Run, Hide, Tell guidance until police arrive on the scene but insight shows that this messaging is not always effectively reaching younger audiences.

Bradford Imperatives for Children

As you will be aware , we recently launched the Bradford Children and Young People’s Plan as a clear statement of our ambitions for children  and young people in the district.  A link to the plan can be found by clicking here

As a key part  of the plan we identified two key imperatives, the “must dos” that are fundamental to  improved  outcomes and underpin  success for our children.  These are

  • Improving school attendance.
  • Reducing the number of children who go missing from home or care

The imperatives are  linked to our Education Covenant, as these are not things that any one organisation or group of people can achieve on their own, they are things that are a district wide, partnership responsibility. Bradford Children’s Trust, who publish the Plan and set the Imperatives want to challenge all of us as a partnership to ask ourselves “What can I do to contribute to the imperatives?”  The Children’s Trust will be coming to partners in the Autumn to ask exactly this question.
