Young people from across three boroughs of West London came together to produce an educational resource that challenges misconceptions and explodes myths surrounding ‘victimless’ crimes. The Trap was the result. Two powerful films that explore the impact of street drug dealing and knife carrying on individuals and their communities. Their message is loud and clear: There is no such thing as a victimless crime. Everyone gets hurt in the process.
The Trap is an educational resource and grassroots initiative designed to challenge the belief that carrying a knife keeps you safe and selling drugs on the street leaves behind no victims.
It is a creative collaboration between a group of young people from west London, the City of Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea and Hammersmith & Fulham Youth Offending Service, and the production companies Latimer Group and Fully Focused Productions.
By exploding myths about so called victimless crimes, The Trap encourages young people to make positive choices for themselves.
