Foundation supports #KnifeFree campaign

31 July 2018

Foundation of Light is backing a Home Office campaign to reduce knife crime among young people.

By using real-life stories of young people who made the decision not to carry knives, the #knifefree campaign aims to highlight the consequences of carrying a knife and to inspire young people aged 10-21 to pursue positive alternatives.

A dedicated website – knifefree.co.uk – has been set up to provide advice, information on support services and activities aimed at empowering them to change their behaviour.

Andy Grant, Foundation of Light’s Head of Education, said: “We are very proud to support the Home Office’s #knifefree campaign.

As part of our work in schools and with community groups we work tirelessly to educate children and teenagers about how the choices they make can impact their lives.

“It is vitally important we help young people understand the dangers associated with carrying a knife and using the emotional real-life stories of those who have faced similar challenges sends an inspirational message.”

Through programmes such as Kicks, which aims to create safer, stronger and more respectful communities, Foundation of Light has engaged almost 2,500 children and teenagers in sports activities and skills-based projects which has helped reduce the likelihood of their involvement in crime and anti-social behaviour.

How to life #knifefree:

  • Friends should never pressure you into doing something you don’t want to. Consider whether the people you surround yourself with are having a positive impact on your life.
  • Some friends may pressure you to carry. Try and think of a way to say no before you’re put on the spot, so you’re ready – it could save your life.
  • Try and stay away from situations that you know are likely to result in conflict or violence.
  • Find positive activities to channel your energy and help you avoid dangerous situations. This will also help you meet others living knife free.
