Keeping Yourself Safe

In England and Wales 99% of young people live knife free. And, while those that carry often claim to do it to feel safer, carrying a knife can get you into dangerous situations.  Even if you can avoid the violence, there are severe emotional, personal and legal consequences that can come from knife carrying. This #knifefree site will help you get information on knife carrying, its effects, and how to make the right decisions.  It also gives information about the consequences of carrying a knife and has details of  support services.

If you carry a knife, it’s never too late to make a positive change in your life. Going knife free takes courage, but the benefits are real. If you’ve considered carrying a knife – or are already carrying – there are things you need to think about. While some people and places make you feel like you need to carry, it’s never worth it.
