Knife Crime

  • The Ben Kinsella Trust
    We are one of the leading anti-knife crime charities in the UK, set up following the tragic murder of Ben Kinsella in 2008. Our vision is of a society where no family or community suffers the loss of a life to knife crime.

  • No knifes, better lives
    NKBL is a Scottish national programme that aims to deter young people from carrying knives. It is a collaboration between Scottish Government and YouthLink Scotland (the national agency for youth work in Scotland). The campaign aims to raise awareness of the consequences and information for young people, parents and practitioners to share these messages.
