1 knife attack every 16 minutes is happening on our streets today.

Knife Crime is the fastest growing killer of young people today…  yet the government aren’t acting.  Instead, they have cut our policing budget by £700 million, slashed our police force by 20,000 officers and reduced stop and search powers.

With gang culture being glorified and street violence on the rise, this epidemic is spreading, it’s leaving more mothers to mourn their children and so much future potential wasted.

The Drop The Knife Community Interest Company and Charitable Trust was established to tackle the issue at the cause. Not through expensive reactive measures that the government keep trying (and failing) to deliver, but by being pro-active.

Established in 2018 after Will Flint endured a brutal knife attack whereby he very nearly lost his life, DTK are on a mission to reduce the knife crime epidemic.

Currently raising money to bring an innovative and effective program to UK schools, discouraging our youth from a life of violence and reduce knife crime: the fastest growing killer on our streets.

The money will be spent on educating young people on the effects of knife crime and the damage it causes to victims and their families.

We are delivering an array of innovative and engaging learning programs to young people in schools.  Through VR learning experiences, live seminars and knife defence workshops, we are working to deliver these across the UK.
