“Every child and young person in Sefton should be able to grow up free from fear of abuse or neglect. We are committed to improving the safety of all children and young people in Sefton. If children are not safe, they cannot be healthy, happy, achieve or reach their full potential. We hold at the fore our obligation that keeping children safe is "everybody’s responsibility.”
