#KnifeFree

August 28, 2018

We are so excited to start our free Anti-Knife Crime workshops in September, thanks to the Home Office's Anti-Knife Crime Community Fund. 

 

They have launched a fantastic campaign on being #KnifeFree and have provided some very useful information on the consequences of carrying a knife. 

 

Here are some of the points, but to see the full list, visit #KnifeFree. 

 

1. Carrying a knife can mean four years in prison, even if you don't use it.

2. Carrying a knife doesn’t just have an impact on you; it can affect your family and friends too.

3. Countries such as the USA and Canada may not allow someone with a criminal record in, even just on holiday.

4. People who carry a weapon are more likely to be hospitalised with an injury caused by violence.

5. There is no ‘safe place’ to stab someone – any stab can be fatal – and the consequences will be just as severe.

 

They have also released a series of videos with a number of young people's experiences.

 If you or someone you know needs support around knife crime or carrying a knife, get in contact with these support services.
