This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government

Petition Tougher sentences for knife crime and fund more support for victims

Today on our streets we are seeing children being murdered or seriously injured by other children using knives. This must end now, please support and save our kids

More details

Tougher sentences are needed to punish perpetrators and deter people from committing the crime.

I am a victim left behind. My father was brutally stabbed in Liverpool in 1982. 37 years on i still suffer that nightmare.

As a child back then i was offered no support from the authorities and I believe if I was my ordeal growing up would have been a lot easier.
