Friend for Portsmouth North, announced a cross-sectoral Taskforce that looks beyond those in schools to other vulnerable groups in society. The Taskforce includes an ‘Access for all’ workstream which, as part of its remit, will review existing initiatives designed to provide period products to vulnerable groups, identify gaps and highlight the groups on which potential new interventions should focus. The Taskforce will report on this in due course.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>On 9 April 2018, the Government published the Serious Violence Strategy that set out action being taken to address serious violence and in particular the recent increases in knife crime, gun crime and homicide. This also includes the national knife crime media campaign, #knifefree, to raise awareness of the consequences of knife crime among young people and to encourage them to take up positive activities.</p><p>We will continue to encourage police forces in England and Wales to undertake a series of coordinated national weeks of action to tackle knife crime under Operation Sceptre. In February this year, the police forces in Northumbria, Cleveland and Durham all participated in Operation Sceptre, which includes targeted stop and searches, weapon sweeps, test purchases of knives from identified retailers, the use of surrender bins and educational activities. We also announced up to £1million for a new round of the anti-knife crime Community Fund which will invite bids for funding later this Spring from community groups to tackle knife crime in their area.</p>
