Support a Blade Free Merseyside – Campaign Launching January 2020

Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy needs your help in supporting an important new campaign being launched in January – #BladeFree Merseyside.

Knife crime is an increasingly serious issue in our communities. To help raise awareness about the new #BladeFree campaign, we are inviting colleagues to pledge their support for #BladeFree.

All you need to do is follow the link and complete this quick 3-minute survey:

The Police Commissioner is fully behind the #BladeFree campaign. In fact, we were involved in co-creating it and the new social movement ‘Our Merseyside’, along with other councils, Merseyside Police and other public agencies.

All the #BladeFree supporters’ (first) names will be shown on the campaign website launching in the new year.

On the website, young people and their families will be able to find activities in their local area, real life stories and other information to help them make the right choices when it comes to knives and other risk-taking behaviours.

Please pledge your support by completing the survey before 20th December 2019.

Let’s tell everyone we’re right behind this important campaign.

Thank you for your support.

PS – you will be able to see the website for yourself when it’s live on 7th January 2020 at

To show your support, please use the links below to follow the various new social media channels which have been created for the campaign:


Wherever you live – Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens, or Wirral – we need you to get behind ‘Our Merseyside’ and support #BladeFree Merseyside. Please complete this survey and your first name will be shown under the list of #BladeFree supporters on the Our Merseyside website.

If you are a group or club that offers activities for young people, promote them for FREE on the Our Merseyside website by providing details via this survey. Young people and families will be able to search the website to find activities they can get involved in close to where they live.
