Young People, Knives and Gangs

One in four 16 to 25-year-olds surveyed by the Prince’s Trust said they feel increasingly unsafe because of the rise in youth violence, and that figure is closer to a third in London.

Two in five young people said that news about rising violent crime makes them worry for their safety, but nearly half said it misrepresents them and their friends.

It is important to give our children the knowledge and understanding around subjects that effect them directly and today Ratcliffe College welcomed us to do just that.

Through a number of interactive sessions we were able to give them a safe environment to discuss their views and feelings whilst offering real life facts and figures to help them understand the problem.
