Word 4 Weapons (W4W)

Helping to create safer communities through Education, training and supporting mental health for a brighter future, we also facilitate distribution of Knife amnesty bins in keeping unwanted weapons off the street and in public spaces.

Word 4 Weapons has been a leading weapons surrender charity in the UK for the last 10 years, supplying knife bins to a number of police forces, community groups and faith organisations.

Now, with the UK’s dramatic increase in knife crime, the Charity is expanding its area of operation to include a range of new education services including training for youth workers, awareness sessions and a range of useful resources.

Most people agree that the recent frightening increase in knife crime can only be tackled by a multi-faceted approach and we believe that our new services will help ensure Word 4 Weapons can play a full and active part in the solution.
