Volunteer – Drop the Knife CIC and Charity

Drop the Knife was formed with the aim of providing a cohesive educational package on anti-knife crime and gangs into schools and colleges, and youth, sports and community-based organisations.

The idea to start the company came from Will Flint who was stabbed 12 times on the 1st January 2017 in Birmingham. Although Will has made a full recovery, he still has effects from the injuries he received. They have now formed the CIC company with three directors including Will who is the CEO. Will has made several appearances on television and radio talking about knife crime and his story, most recently on various BBC Radio stations.

They are based in the Piece Mill, Halifax (on Horton Street by the Piece Hall) and are looking for volunteers that can put in a couple of hours a week helping to organise fundraising activities or helping with sponsored events. Voluntary Ambassadors are also required to deliver their educational package in schools. If you are interested in helping with the CIC & Charity, please contact through their website: or contact Brian Reeves:
