One Punch UK envisions a nation without violence, where social violence is condemned.
Their aims are:
To raise awareness of the devastation that ONE PUNCH can do
To educate people about the risks and consequences of a split-second decision to engage in violence
To harness the knowledge and life experiences of those affected by one punch violence, to educate others.
Help people make safe choices, to recognise the warning signs of and deal with a potentially violent situation
Develop targeted intervention pathways for the perpetrators of social violence
Work alongside other agencies who are campaigning against alcohol and drug-fuelled violence
Produce an education package to deliver in schools, colleges, universities, workplaces amongst other areas
We believe that if we start early in schools, educating children about the consequences of one punch, we will make a difference
We will support the victims of one punch violence, which includes families and friends who have also suffered as a result. Maxine, Kristian’s mam, received very little professional support so this is an important part of the campaign
Kristian’s Journey believe that they have the experience to make a difference with the One Punch campaign
