#LifeorKnife is for young people, parents and teachers. All parents should have a conversation with their child about knives and knife crime.

Watch videos of grieving families, murderers and reformed gang members to help start those conversations.

See our ten step by step guide, and research the signs you might need to look out for.

Think about safely binning your unused knives, as most knives used in knife crime are kitchen knives, and if you can count your knives you could save a life.

See where you can report, get help and support.

Life or knife โ€“ the choice is yours.
