NKBL Module for Peer Education Groups
Do you support a peer education group or programme? We’re offering a half or full day NKBL training to peer education groups that would like to add “knife carrying/knife crime” to the range of topics that they can deliver.
Groups do not have to have had any previous involvement with the NKBL programme but should be part of an active, established peer education programme.
The training will offer young peer educators and supporting practitioners an overview of issues related to knife carrying and young people, an introduction to the range of NKBL resources available and support to begin designing workshops to deliver to other young people
The training will be delivered by Fast Forward. To book a session please email Jane Dailly (NKBL National Delivery Team) or phone 0131 313 2488.
NKBL Comms Campaign
New campaign for No Knives Better Lives in 2016-17 - you can follow 'Mark's Story' and see what happens next. The aim of the campaign is to communicate the risks and consequences of knife carrying to young people across Scotland. Between June and March we’ll follow Mark's Story and the devastating consequences for his and the victim’s family, friends and community and share these key messages through our social media channels.
As a campaign partner and to ensure that we're reaching young people in your area, we are looking for partners to support this by sharing the material that we put out with young people that you have contact with. To make it easier to get involved at any stage, previous months messages are all on our website for sharing, check them out now!
