Donations Supporting Lifesaving Work
As knife crime continues to be a safety issue for our communities The Safety Centre team are passionate about delivering imaginative and engaging early intervention sessions. The in school sessions help young people understand the impact of their choices around carrying a knife. They also give young people a safe space to talk about what’s going on in their worlds and how their decisions around carrying a weapon can change their futures and the lives of their friends, families and communities.
The PACT Committee said ‘When we discussed the Safety Centre Charity’s Knife Crime Prevention Initiative it was a unanimous decision to take this forward. As a local business, many of Personal Group’s staff are MK residents who are very aware of the challenges being faced currently. Bringing support and education to local students is key in helping to reverse this worrying trend and we are very pleased to be funding and working with the Safety Centre Charity and their immersive education centre Hazard Alley.’
Maya Joseph-Hussain, CEO of the Safety Centre Charity said ‘We’re thrilled to receive this donation from the Personal Group’s charitable trust. Donations like this help us support more children and young people across our region, delivering life saving learning. Every student receiving a session has the opportunity to talk about knife crime in a safe, supportive way, without judgement and with time for important discussions. Thank you to Personal Group’s charitable trust for supporting our life saving work.
We’re reaching out to our communities to ensure this lifesaving learning continues for generations to come. If your business would like to be part of this journey contact us to talk about you can help save lives across our region.’
