Annual Memorial Service

Families for Peace Memorial Service is to commemorate the lives of all young people killed by gang’s guns,
knife crime and violence and to support and give a voice to the bereaved families.

Here’s Jessie J in the girl group called Soul Deep.
The song has a very powerful message & I really hope people will watch this & learn from this video!

Empower and equip young people & families for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
In Memory of all those who have lost their lives as a result of violence, gun, and knife crime.

West Midlands Knife & Gun Crime Statistics

There have been more than 10,000 victims of knife and gun crime in the West Midlands over the last three years – with the youngest aged just 10, new figures show.
The figures, released by West Midlands Police, show there were 9,778 victims of knife crime in the region between 2019 and 2021, while 1,000 people found themselves victims of crimes involving firearms.

Weapons were used in almost 50 murders recorded by the police force over the three-year period. Thousands were victims of assaults and robberies by armed perpetrators, according to the figures released under a freedom of information request.

While victims of knife crime fell slightly from 3,538 in 2019 to 3,178 last year, those who became victims of firearm offences increased more than 50 per cent over the same timeframe – from 265 to 415.
