Crime is harmful not only to an individual but also to their community. It can affect everybody – physically and emotionally damaging the victim, and having a detrimental impact on the future of the offender.
The Fixers on this page are sharing their stories to discourage other young people from participating in criminal activity. Committing offences can have lifelong repercussions for everyone involved, which some Fixers have experienced themselves.
Whether it’s to do with carrying knives, criminal records or gang-related issues, their campaigns show the importance of breaking the cycle of crime and leading a life on the straight and narrow.
