Level 3 business students joined forces with local charities, doctors and the police to stage a special knife crime awareness event at Southwark College on 13 December.

Around 200 students from both Lewisham and Southwark Colleges attended the lunchtime event, which aimed to provide an insight into knife crime and how people can protect themselves without knives, enabling them to feel safe within their local communities.

Guest speakers – including the local police, medics from Kings College Hospital trauma unit, local charities Yac & K and Khulisa, and SPAC Nation church – told students about their services and invited them to get involved in local initiatives in the future. The College’s drama students then presented a role-play showing how knife crime happens and how it can be avoided.

Attendees then got the chance to ask questions and discuss issues around knife crime during a Q&A session hosted by the organisations present.

Sue Hughes, Head of Business said: “With knife crimes responsible for the deaths of 50 people in London during just the first three months of 2018, this is a huge problem which is destroying young lives. This initiative by our business students was a fantastic, positive step towards tackling knife crime and making London a safer place.”
