LFC Foundation Teams Up with KnifeSavers.

LFC Foundation hosted KnifeSavers at Anfield stadium to provide emergency medical training workshops

Over the two days, we welcomed over 150 young people from nine schools to four different sessions, where representatives of KnifeSavers gave talks and live demonstrations using dummies, showing exactly what to do when confronted with an incident involving a knife.

Also present on the day was Emily Spurrell, the Merseyside Police Crime Commissioner. She said “Sadly in this region, we have seen too many times the devastating consequences when knives are used.

“Our priority must be to prevent such tragedies. The best way to do that is by working together to act early to protect our young people and prevent them from getting drawn into activity which could become dangerous for them.

“Today’s event is a fantastic multi-agency initiative which aims to speak to young people in a way that really hits home about and helps them to make positive decisions about the type of future they want.

“It’s great that with the support of the LFC Foundation, we can reach so many young people with this powerful message. My thanks to everyone who has helped pull this impactful programme together.”

Last week, we circulated a video where we stand side by side with Everton in the Community, Tranmere in the Community & Knifesavers against knife crime. This can be viewed here

KnifeSavers is a not-for-profit programme that empowers people to deal with bleeding caused by knife injuries through their Bleed Control Kits, education programme, and their step-by-step app.
