The Guardian has reported that eight schools in Merseyside are engaged in this project which has been backed by the Home Office.
Gaynor Bell, from the charity Support After Murder and Manslaughter has explained that children are exposed to so much violence that they become desensitised to it:
“They think it’s normal life. We’re telling them this is not real, this does not go on and it should not go on."The scheme is expected to be expanded to Lancashire next year. We’d love to learn the methodology in place here.
