Knife Crime Awareness

Knife Crime Awareness

Wales Restorative Approaches Partnership By Wales Restorative Approaches Partnership

WRAP would like to bring together expertly trained former offenders and recovered victims with young people to make them aware of knife crime.

Cardiff Delivery stage

pledged of £13,239

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

The training and practice team at WRAP and our wonderful volunteers know we could help people stay safe, build their confidence and initiate some great community led work. We would provide former offenders and recovered victims with training and mentoring to accompany us to visit schools and talk about their experiences, introduce restorative approaches and encourage young people not to carry knives.

What we'll deliver:

  • Train volunteers
  • Train young peer mentors
  • Visit schools to raise awareness and prevent knife crime

Why it's a great idea:

Knife crime is a problem in South Wales communities and in particular in our schools. We can bring a unique and impactful perspective to young people, encouraging them to avoid carrying knives and to work with their peers to make them aware too.
Sometimes hearing about things you shouldn't do when you're a teenager makes very little difference to what you actually do, think and feel. If you hear the real consequences from those with experience and you learn how to share that with others it can make such a big difference.

Steps to get it done:

  • We will train former offenders and recovered victims to share their experiences safely and effectively.
  • We will train young people to share the message and support others their age and younger with RA
  • We will work with partner schools to deliver interesting and interactive workshops to children and young people
