Knives: Young Londoners targeted in anti-knife drive

I spotted an interesting idea from London which highlighted approaches to try to address the knife-carrying culture.

See article: Young People Now website

In short, five charitable trusts are supporting the initiative by funding the initiative. The organisations were chosen for their ability to target different groups in different settings.

Each will be funded for three years to carry out anti-knife work in a London area, with the possibility of a two-year extension.

One of the projects is likely to include a forum of 20 young people. They will be involved in peer education, and will also run events to publicise the dangers of carrying and using knives.
