Help us create Safezones to tackle knife crime

We are a Non-profit organisation designed to develop the art of public action in community matters. We are launching a new Initiative that will empower local communities to take constructive action in the event of a stabbing or shooting.

Our Aims:
- Empower local businesses 
- Provide safe spaces for people seeking help
- Provide after-care and outreach

This is how it works:
1) A business signs up to be a Safezone
2) Employees of that business receive FREE first-aid training, Youth Engagement workshops & Medical kits
3) In the event of a violent incident a person can seek sanctuary in the Safezone or employees of the business can administer life-saving skills

We understand the feeling of helplessness when it comes to knife crime, the Safezone Initiative is practical, proactive and a chance for everybody to give back. So far this has been self-funded but the support and feedback from the community lets us know this Initiative is greatly needed and so we are raising funds to help us accomplish our aims. The money will be used to create our Outreach teams and the Literature for our workshops, we are also starting a knife amnesty that you can learn more about here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FnO8CTj6Bk&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR2ZAjGj_E0ThTDGSTBaUsINEksF-4cl99Dh2VZlGWW1WwmVTMe8G2H5Gho

DISCLAIMER: We would never ask anyone or business to interject themselves into a violent incident, our hope is that following the event of a violent incident, businesses and communities can administer skills learned to save a life.
