Anthony is a security professional who now dedicates his time to raising awareness of knife crime and how communities can help prevent it. He offers free workshops to local schools in Sheffield through his ‘Keep Sheffield Stainless’ campaign. Anthony and a team of volunteers work to create a safe place for those affected by knife crime to come together, and to reduce the number of knifes on the street. The project collective talk to youngsters about knife crime, the impact of carrying a knife, how to handle confrontations and conflict resolution.
Keep Sheffield Stainless also offers a free knife/weapon collection and disposal service in and around Sheffield. Its volunteers work to reduce knife crime by safely collecting weapons in an agreed location – while following police guidelines and documenting all collections.
