On Thursday 4 March, we remembered Damani Mauge who lost his life to knife crime a year ago, and we explained how RTK has developed over the last 18 months, and heard feedback from those who were there.
It was a privilege to hear from some of Damani’s family as they remembered Damani, and as they grieve for him. We’re very grateful for those who shared a little about his life and talents, and the way he was caring for other young people through youth work.
In the second part of the meeting we talked about RTK’s purpose, looking at each of its three aims. A number of people talked about how supportive they have found us, as a community together, as well as offering their time and skills to help grow and strengthen RTK, and discover more ways we can join in positive action to tackle the issues that contribute to knife crime.
Val and Rosie took notes of the suggestions given, and with the help of others will discuss and report on progress with these ideas. If you would like to comment further, following the meeting, please feel free to contact us via our contact page.
