Word 4 Weapons - The UK's Leading Weapons Surrender Initiative

Welcome to Word 4 Weapons "Collecting Knives, Saving Lives". To date we have collected in excess of 28,000 weapons that have been voluntarily surrendered.

Word 4 Weapons is a multi-award winning, faith based organisation founded in 2007 by Michael Smith who in 2016 received an MBE from HM Queen for his work with Word 4 Weapons.

The aim of Word 4 Weapons is to counteract the wave of knife and gun crime which is devastating our communities. There are now in excess of 30 weapons bins across Greater London and the West Midlands. 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.
