1 - Violent crime is reducing in the UK - Telepgraph article. All of our local projects partner with the Police to assist with issues within the night-time economy and it is great to see that crime is reducing.
2 - Very sad to read that deaths from alcohol related issues are rising for young women - BBC report.
This week we linked with Wash My Pink Jumper UK which is a new organisation looking to help young women wanting to break the binge drink lifestyle.
CNI Network also offer: patrols and safe places in 120 communities with people who care for others helping those who are or could become vulnerable; an alcohol and safety education resource to open conversations with young people around alcohol issues; initiatives such as Club Angels (Leeds) getting alongside people in nightclubs; a whole range of links on to other organisations who can support people with alcohol linked issues.
