• So many young people are murdered through gun and knife crime - Word 4 Weapons was set up to do something positive about it.

  • We have distributed many weapon bins throughout London - this has contributed to the collection of weapons and the saving of lives.

  • Through the help of Partners, Sponsors, Volunteers and Donations - We can help stop a life ending like this.

Word 4 Weapons- The UK' s First Weapons Exchange Programme

Welcome to Word 4 Weapons. So far we have helped save lives by collecting over 20,000 weapons voluntarily handed in.

Word 4 Weapons is a multi-award winning, faith based organisation founded in 2007 by Michael Smith to counteract the wave of knife and gun crime which is devastating our communities. There are now in excess of 25 across Greater London. Weapons are openly used on our streets leaving individuals in fear, injured or killed. We are doing something different to bring back the true value of life to a society that is becoming numb to violent crime.
