Getting Real with Guns and Knives

‘Getting Real with Guns and Knives’ is an information-packed book designed as an invaluable resource for teachers, parents and the local community looking to educate their children and students about the reality of knife crime and gun crime on the UK’s streets. ‘Getting Real with Guns and Knives’ is an equally useful tool for parents, community leaders and young people themselves.

Supporting Teachers in Delivering Knife Crime and Gun Crime Awareness

The book starts with an introduction from author Letise Sampson who talks about his own experiences growing up in north-west London and the profound effect they had on his life. It then moves on to raising awareness of the vast and complex topic of weapons and youth violence, covering the area in breadth and depth.

The final part of the book focuses on tactics and strategies, looking carefully at what has worked in the past and making suggestions about tackling gun crime and knife crime more effectively.
