We educate and inform youth about the risks involved with Gangs and Knife Crime Violence

We educate and inform youth about the inherent dangers of knife crime and assist youngsters in making positive decisions to stay safe. Our workshops and sessions follow the path of both the victim and the offender. We journey through a series of unique and immersive circumstances to exhibit to young people how ill-informed choices and consequences are intrinsically combined.

Our workshops switch young people’s attitudes to knife crime. We expose the false myth that says carrying a knife will protect you. We reinforce better social values and ensure young people give and spread better advice to each other, safely challenging their peers and friends who are carrying (or thinking of carrying) a knife.
