Teach your child to recite their name, address and telephone number.

Encourage young children to stay close and hold your hand or trolley.

Make sure that children know that Trafford Centre staff wear red polo shirt, red gilet and black trousers and also Trafford Centre name badges.

Children remain your responsibility. Please DO NOT leave them unsupervised, especially when using lifts and escalators.

If you are little and lost

STOP, stand still and LOOK around. DO NOT run around.

If you see the person you came with, go straight back to them and hold their hand.

If you cannot see the person you came with go straight to the till if you are in a shop.

If you are out in the malls look for a member of Trafford Centre staff who has an red polo shirt, red gilet and black trousers and name badge on.
