In support of #KnifeCrimeAwarenessWeek 2023, The New Croft will host Paul Hannaford for a free Knife Crime & Drug Abuse Workshop on 18th May at 6:30pm. 

This talk will be suitable for students in Years 7-11 and open to the general public. Entry is free, but to secure your place, please click here.

Paul Hannaford is an independent drug and crime lecturer who has spent the last ten years educating as many people as possible on the dangers of drug and alcohol addiction, gang involvement and knife crime by sharing the details of his experience.

During the talk, you will hear how Paul spent 23 years of his life consumed by addiction, supported by a life in gangs and centred around crime. After finally getting clean in 2009, Paul vowed to help as many other people as he could, and avoid the horrors he endured by retelling his story to hundreds of thousands each year, reaching over 500,000 people in his career so far.
