“It has changed my mind, now I wouldn’t think about taking a knife out because number one I can hurt myself and you just look silly hurting yourself and then giving yourself all these problems and then the guilt of doing it to someone else because that’s someone else’s child.”

“He incurred mainly defence wounds to his arms. He then entered Tesco’s and grabbed nappies to stop the bleeding. He told his worker he was glad he had done StreetDoctors as he knew to protect his vital organs and held his arms up in a crossed manner across his chest.”

– Case Worker of Ethan, 15, victim of knife crime, Liverpool
