School pupils offered support following Liverpool attack
Pupils living in areas of the city affected by the recent terrorist attack in Liverpool have been offered support.
Officers from Liverpool City Council’s Prevent team have offered a tailored plan to schools in areas near police cordons, such as Kensington, Greenbank and around the Liverpool Women’s Hospital.
Schools have been given special resources about talking to young people about a terrorist attack.
Councillor Tomas Logan, Cabinet member for Employment and Skills, said: “We are aware that communities, including young people, will be worried about incidents of hate crime and the potential for extremist groups to use this event to antagonise and promote hatred.
“The safety and trust of our communities is our priority and we are working together to ensure that this awful event doesn’t define our city, and help communities that have been affected.
“We are also actively encouraging all Liverpool residents to report any hate crime incidents, no matter how small.”
