• the Daniel Fox Foundation

    I was delighted to meet Dawn Jones from the Daniel Fox Foundation to discuss the charity’s positive work in educating, raising awareness and transforming outcomes for local young people in relation to the devastating consequences of knife-crime.

    Set up in 2017 to commemorate Daniel’s life, following his tragic murder in St Helens Town Centre, the Foundation’s focus remains on tackling the causes and effects of knife-crime, such as discouraging carrying weapons, better targeting resources, tackling perpetrators, and meeting victims’ needs. Their commendable efforts have seen them establish close working relationships with local schools, colleges and St Helens Council.

    I want to thank all those at the Foundation and St Helens Community Policing for the real difference they make in tackling the scourge of knife-crime from roots to branch. I fully support their work and will be raising their campaigns with Ministers and colleagues in Parliament.
