UTurn 2 Staying Safe


The UTurn 2 Staying Safe initiative is to help young people make safe, kind, and responsible choices.

We are committed to working with partners to help keep young people safe and informed. We have developed a youth engagement initiative called UTurn 2 Staying Safe. This will be a fun and interactive way for UTurn to engage with young people.

Our UTurn 2 Staying Safe initiative is an extremely useful way of encouraging young people and providing them with an opportunity to express their feelings about youth violence and knife crime to showcase their work in a positive way.
