Being safe is important when you are at school, at home or out and about in your community. You never know when you might come across a situation where you or a friend are at risk of harm so it is best to be prepared by having some ideas about what you can do to stay safe.
As you move from adolescence to adulthood you will find that there are lots of things you will want to celebrate such as major school exams, significant birthdays, and the achievement of legal rights such as driving and purchasing and drinking alcohol. The risk of violent or potentially violent situations occurring are likely to be increased at these types of celebrations.
Violence can be physical, sexual or emotional and can sometimes be directly linked to bullying .
The One Punch Can Kill campaign is aimed at preventing senseless violence among young people, and about stopping them from making split-second decisions that could ruin their lives or the lives of others.
It targets 'Generation Y' using modern media and technology, and informs today's youth that acts of violence can have very serious and damaging consequences.
Information regarding the campaign is available on the One Punch Can Kill website .
