Thanks to funding from the Knife Crime Community Fund, Groundwork North Wales have developed and delivered a new project called Ripples aiming to reduce knife crime and its terrible effects.
The innovative programme shows young people how the bravado of carrying or using a knife can have a disastrous effect on themselves, their families, friends and the community in which they live.
Activities on this project will include:
- Self-defence - How you identify a threatening or volatile situation, what you might do to avoid it or leave it.
- Bush craft – Team building and constructive uses for knives for food preparation and wood carving.
- First Aid - Session delivered by our qualified and experienced First Aid trainers, with Catastrophic Bleed Instructor status
- Classroom session exploring the impacts of knife crime - Discussion concerning how families and friends would feel and react if any of the participants were to be a victim, or a perpetrator, of a knife crime.
