"This was the first time this inspector  from Grahams Consultants had visited the home and I felt she did this in a professional and friendly manner. She made the staff feel at ease, asked appropriate questions and was very approachable throughout the inspection. I hope she is able to visit us again in the future."

The JJEffect Ltd

Anti-knife Crime & Child safeguarding presentations throughout the UK

To whom it may concern,

I would firstly like to take this opportunity to say a big hello and very much hope everyone is staying safe during these unprecedented times.

Byron Highton has for the last year been delivering extremely powerful and dynamic anti knife crime presentations and child safeguarding awareness talks, in schools and working very closely with the CPS both in Lancashire and Greater Manchester, in addition Lancashire Constabulary/violence reduction unit, the Princess Trust and youth clubs, the Fire Service and many more organisations.

The presentations content discusses measures on criminal exploitation, grooming, county lines and the harsh reality and the devastating effects that knife crime has on the victims and the preparatory families alike and the entire community as a whole. As seen on BBC breakfast live and ITV live.

Greater Manchester police, Tameside police force, Lancashire police force, Criminal prosecution services in various counties and the Lancashire Fire Service and many other crime prevention organisations have been fully engaging and supporting the valuable work that is being done by Byron/The JJEffect.

The presentation has had tremendous feedback across every police force and Senior officers within the police forces and has been quoted as one of the most powerful anti-knife crime talks being delivered in the U.K.

Byron has over the last year delivered the anti-knife crime presentation to now over 15,000 children and young adults in schools across the U.K., telling the tragic story of his younger brother Jon-Jo, who lost his life in 2014 to knife crime.

During the last year Bryon Highton has been working alongside The Safety Guide Foundation, by telling “his story “.,

Byron would like to share his amazing news with you, over the last few months he has been extremely busy working alongside the CPS and other organisations in setting up The JJEffect.

We are very much looking forward to hearing from you in order to schedule presentations, due to the current situation we are equipped to deliver the presentation on line via Microsoft teams or a platform of your choice.

The JJEffect is now very much looking forward to be able to provide our services to anyone who requires our assistance across the U.K., helping to keep the streets of the U.K. safer.

For further information or to arrange to have a discussion on the services we provide please do not hesitate to contact Byron at

Kind Regards Byron Highton Director
