Did you know, if you are with someone who uses a knife you could still go to jail, even if you didn’t use or carry a knife yourself?
Carrying a knife or being around others with knives can do a lot of harm to you and your loved ones. Find out the facts about knives here.
It doesn’t have to be that way!
There are many young people in your local area who have struggled to find their way but have become who they want to be.
Our Merseyside is yours. This website is here for you to find things to do in your local area. You’ll meet people like you, make new friends and have fun. You could even discover a new hobby – footy? skating? bikes? music? Search In your area in the top menu bar to find your thing.
SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE
There are lots of pressures on young people. As parents, family members, teachers and role models, you can help by listening and talking with the young person. Having a conversation about knives and the risks might be difficult, but it’s a really important conversation to have.
In spite of what you might think, young people DO care what you think! Listening and talking through issues can help young people make the right choices.
