Knife Crime and Girls

Choices and Consequences

Girls and young women are often overlooked or ignored when it comes to addressing knife crime and youth violence. Yet they do get drawn into youth violence and often subjected to sexual exploitation, coercion, carrying or hiding knives/drugs, as well as physical and emotional abuse.

This workshop helps young women understand the dynamic of youth violence and criminality and how it could affect them. Using our choices and consequences model it helps participants understand how they can see seek support and how to make positive decisions to stay safe and achieve their aspirations.

The Best You

A 6 week course helping young people build the self esteem and confidence they need to turn away from knife crime

The Best You is a behavioural change program. We empower participants with confidence and skills so that they feel positive about themselves and their ability to succeed in life. Participants learn to identify their unique strengths, improve their ability to manage emotions, tap into resilience, plan for the future and improve employability. They are supported with regular telephone mentoring throughout the course.

The ‘Best You’ program is conducted over six weeks, and delivered through weekly 90-minute group workshops. Workshops are fun and interactive. Week-to -week, participants make significant changes that bring huge benefits in life.
