Recently Byron Highton, founder of anti-knife crime charity The JJ Effect, visited school to deliver assemblies to Year 7 students.
As seen on ITV and the BBC, The JJ Effect is one of the UK’s most powerful and hard-hitting anti-knife crime movements. It seeks to educate young people about carrying weapons.
Byron established The JJ Effect following the murder of his brother Jon-Jo in 2014. He draws on his experience to educate young people and steer them away from knife crime, county lines, grooming and criminal exploitation.
