The Ben Kinsella trust was set up after the brutal murder of 16 year old Ben Kinsella, he was stabbed to death in Islington in 2008. The charity aims to educate children of all ages about the dangers of knife crime and the devastating effect it can have on families. They work to raise awareness of the issues and help reduce the numbers of children carrying these deadly weapons. They have created a series of workshops and teaching resources to help with this.
The charity is also fundraising to build youth centres in Ben’s name to help get kids off the streets. To find out more about the charity click here.
