South Gloucestershire Violence Reduction Partnership

South Gloucestershire is a safe place to live and work but incidents of serious violence do occur.

Knife crime in particular has a devastating impact on communities and individuals. South Gloucestershire’s Violence Reduction Partnership, which includes the council’s community safety team, children’s social care, police, schools and other partners, is committed to educating young people about the dangers and impacts of knife crime and is working hard to keep them safe.


In South Gloucestershire, there are also a number of bleed kits which can be used to help save lives in catastrophic trauma incidents and a number of knife surrender bins, where people can place knives and bladed weapons without question or fear of prosecution. Bleed kit locations can be found at: https://www.heartsafe.org.uk/bleed-kit-map/.


Knife amnesty bins are located in Patchway, Staple Hill and Kingswood. Any bladed weapon can be placed inside without question or fear of prosecution. In an emergency call 999. Anonymously report a crime https://crimestoppers-uk.org/
