The Ben Kinsella Trust


The Trust exists o promote knife-crime awareness – many people believe that knife crime is not their problem and will never affect them. Sadly this is being proven wrong more and more and we want to ensure that everyone knows the threat this problem poses to our lives.   To educate children of all ages of the consequences of knife crime and what it can do to a family – by ensuring children as young as primary school age know the difference between right and wrong and will never consider picking up a weapon, be it through peer pressure, fear or simply believing it is cool, we aim to send the message to kids today that carrying a knife is not acceptable.   Above all, Ben’s family urge anyone who carries a knife or weapon to lay it down and think about the pain and suffering they may cause.
