Following the Knife crime conference at Madinah Mosque in July 2018, numerous media programmes, khutba (friday sermons) and communications have been coordinated regionally.

Luton Mosques supported and publicised the event held on 19th July featuring a range of speakers from Bedfordshire Police, public services providers, Portland Neighbourhood Watch and Imams involved in community engagement. The event received more than 80 attendees who also participated in an interactive workshop to plan out how we can work together locally to raise awareness of the dangers of knife crime, the associated consequences and how to reduce violent incidents and conflicts.
