Join the Young Fabians as we explore a public health approach to tackling knife crime.
Knife crime is an epidemic that cannot be solved by one agency or organisation in isolation. We’ve heard the calls for a more holistic public health approach to the crisis: an ambition that all relevant agencies and services work together more effectively… But how do we make this public health approach a reality and what would this look like in practice?
In this panel discussion, we will explore the policies and strategies that a future Labour Government could and should adopt to halt the rise in knife crime and find a solution to its root causes. On our panel, we are delighted be joined by Lord Kennedy (Labour and Co-op), Shadow Spokesperson (Home Affairs). Further speakers to be confirmed.
