SAFER – Knife Angel London event for businesses: Tuesday 24 September

We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday 24 September will be hosting Knife Angel London; an exclusive event to support businesses in reducing knife crime in Islington.

Where and when is this event?

Knife Angel London will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, 60 Pentonville Road, London N1 9LA.

We will be running the session twice on Tuesday 24 September to enable as many business representatives to attend.  The session times are:

  • Morning – Registration from 09.00, session time 09.30 to 11.30, networking until 12.00.
  • Afternoon – Registration from 13.30, session time 14.00 to 16.00, networking until 17.00.

Why we are holding this event?

Knife crime in London affects everyone; the victims and their families and friends, the communities where crimes happen, the police and other emergency services. Knife crime affects the business community too, from loss of trading as a direct result of incidents through to a reduction in the perception of safety resulting in poorer trading conditions.

We all have a role to play in reducing knife crime in London and the cost to society. An oft-asked question is “what can I do to stop these terrible incidents taking place?”  Those who attend the Knife Angel London event from the Angel business community will be doing something practical to help reduce knife crime in London

Who should attend this event?

Knife Angel London is suitable for anyone from the Angel business community, but is particularly relevant to businesses that sell knives or bladed items, or have them in their premises.  Attendees can be general managers, duty managers, owners, security personnel and anyone involved in the training or communication to workers.

What will be learnt at this event?

Participants at the Knife Angel London event will get a better understanding of the law and ‘best practice’ in terms of knife sales and storage. Attendees will also learn how to handle potentially difficult sales situations and be taught essential first aid techniques that may just help save the life of someone who has been a victim of a knife attack.

Who is hosting this event?

Knife Angel London is being hosted by in conjunction with the Metropolitan Police, Islington Trading Standards, London Ambulance Service and The Ben Kinsella Trust.

How do I register for this event?
