Name: Joe Holdsworth
Age: 20
Year of the Fix: 2018
Location: Walsall
Campaign: To persuade young people to think twice about carrying knives.

A recent survey of young people in my town revealed the top issue concerning them is knife crime.

 

That’s why we asked Fixers to help us make a film about the dangers of taking a knife to school.

 

It concentrates on the pressures which made a young man carry a knife and the terrible grief his father feels after he is killed.

 

The main message is to highlight how such a simple, easy, but huge mistake - can have massive repercussions.

I would like to thank Rory Chance and Hannah Billingham for supporting me with my fix.

This project was funded by NHS England
