This workshop has been developed to help stop children feeling the need to arm themselves before leaving the house! We have worked closely with the Youth Justice Board and Police to make sure we have a great Just Enough style session for your children with a subject that for some, maybe very close to home. This workshop breaks the myths around the idea that knives give you ‘respect’ ‘protection’ or ‘strength’. Children will be inspired to believe that they are valuable - more valuable than a mobile phone!

  • How to tell if someone is not looking out for your best interests

  • How someone can be sucked into a gang 

  • What gang members are sometimes made to do 

  • Why they might feel worried enough to carry a knife,

  • How arguments escalate - yet, the better thing to do would be to walk away.

  • What to do if you feel as though you are in danger 

  • How one person can change the world 

  • Who to talk to if you feel pressured into carrying a knife
