A WEARSIDE MP is backing a new book to promote child safety.
Whoops! is aimed at parents, carers and guardians of children from birth to late teens, and features information and safety tips to keep kids safe.
The handbook will be distributed across the region to children’s services.
Washington and Sunderland East MP Sharon Hodgson, who is shadow children and families minister, said: “I absolutely welcome this initiative. The responsibility to protect children from various forms of harm that they could potentially be exposed to is shared by all of us – whether statutory organisations such as schools and the police, parents, or just members of the community.”
