UTurn 2 Staying Safe 2020

The UTurn2StayingSafe2020 Competition Is Now Closed!

As part of the UTurn 2 Staying Safe initiative, we aimed to actively involve young people in a competition designing the artwork for 15 knife amnesty bins across Essex to raise awareness of youth violence and knife crime while educational establishments are closed.

Taking part in the competition, helped the young people to research and learn about the topics (young violence and knife crime) giving them a clearer understanding of the dangers and consequences of being involved in violence and/or knife related crimes. It also helped them to create clear messages that other young people need to know to stay safe and where they can get more information, help and advice if they need it.

All entries for our competition will be displayed on our UTurn 2 Staying Safe 2020 gallery.
