Help and advice

There is always a way to live a life without knives. If knives are affecting your life or the life of someone you know, you don’t have to face it alone.

Please speak to someone you trust about your concerns.

Who to talk to

Someone I know is carrying a knife

Speak to an adult you can trust. This could be someone in your family, one of your teachers at school, your School Police Officer, or your youth worker. 

If it’s not an emergency, you can contact Fearless completely anonymously to report your concerns. 

I feel pressured to carry a knife
