Greater Manchester no longer has a Police and Crime Commissioner. The Mayor of Greater Manchester has now taken responsibility for policing and crime.

Young people encouraged to make a stand against domestic violence

Tony Lloyd speaks to pupils at St Catherine's Academy about domestic violence

Bolton schoolchildren have been learning about the signs of domestic abuse and what they can do to challenge it.

Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd visited students at St Catherine’s Academy  to highlight the warning signs of domestic violence in teenage relationships and encourage young people to get help and support.

Odd Theatre Company led the year 10 pupils in a workshop and performed a short play showing the consequences of domestic abuse.

Tony said: “This is about having a conversation with our young people at an early stage about what domestic violence is and making them aware of what support and help is available if they find themselves in an abusive relationship. There are too many victims suffering in silence and we need to do all we can to raise awareness and work together to break the cycle of domestic violence.”

The domestic violence workshop has been rolled out to a number of schools across Greater Manchester. The next one takes place at Royton and Crompton School in Oldham later this month.
