National Personal Safety Day

National Personal Safety Day 2015 (7th October)

National Personal Safety Day, which is organised by Suzy Lamplugh Trust, is an annual event aimed at highlighting some of the simple, practical solutions that everyone can use to help avoid violence and aggression in today’s society. It’s about helping people live safer, more confident lives.

This year’s theme is “Keep It REAL”

This year, Suzy Lamplugh Trust is urging young men throughout the UK to ‘Keep It REAL’, by making themselves aware of the dangers and taking steps to ensure their own safety.

Keep it :
R is for READY
E is for EDUCATE
A is for ALERT
L is for LEGAL
Young men are encouraged to be READY in case an incident occurs. EDUCATE yourselves about the dangers you could come into contact with. Be ALERT to danger – it may happen when you least expect it. Above all – stay LEGAL. Carrying a knife for self defence not only endangers yourself and others, but carries with it a sentence of up to 4 years in prison.
