Insights into Knife Crime

The factors that drive young people into Knife and Gun crime are often very complex. Most Parents may not be aware when their children or particularly the ones known as Generation Z are exposed to criminal behaviour until they become gang members or victims of serious crime themselves. These children are coerced from an early age into committing crime. Some of them have complex needs such as mental health, child sexual exploitation, drugs and alcohol, and may or may not be in education and or employment. Many youngsters are carrying knives out of fear, in order to defend themselves.


  • Are Modern Day Parents doing enough to stop their children from getting into Knife and Gun Crime?
  • What are the current barriers preventing them in this growing crisis?
  • Are they aware of their legal rights and the relevant Legislation?
  • Do Parents know or have access the support networks and local resources tackling Knife and Gun crime?

It is a known fact that the police, or other statutory authorities cannot be left to deal with the Knife and Gun crime crisis by themselves. Parents must be encouraged to work closely with the relevant authorities, dedicated charities, schools, hospitals, prison, the media, community groups, cultural groups; support and faith groups, etc

The responsibility to encourage the Generation Z to stay out of Gun and Knife crime should not be left to any single group.
