One Punch North East educates people about the risks and consequences of a split second decision to engage with violence.
It helps people make safe choices and recognise the warning signs of and deal with a potentially violent situation.
The organisation currently works with Cleveland Police and Durham Constabulary. One Punch has applied for funding from the Community Safety Initiative Fund for £5,000 to purchase promotional material, e.g. leaflets and beer mats.
This application supports the PCC’s priorities of diverting people from offending, with a focus on rehabilitation and the prevention of reoffending and ensuring a better deal for victims and witnesses.
