The Home Office recently launched a campaign aimed at reducing knife crime amongst young people aged 10-21. The #knifefree campaign challenges perceptions that carrying a knife is normal and aims to make young people safer.
The campaign is particularly relevant to people of school and college age. It features inspirational real-life case studies of young people who have turned their lives around and provides the opportunity for schools to consider how best to send a clear message that the culture of carrying knives amongst young people is a problem that we must address. The Home Office has produced a collection of posters which can be downloaded here.
