Founded by Ben Wintour and Pia Fontes in 2017, 

Steel Warriors looks to bring down the number of young people carrying knives in the UK.

We melt down knives taken off London's streets and recycle the steel into free outdoor calisthenics gyms. 

We want to provide young people with a free space that not only gets them talking about knife crime, but gives them more confidence in their bodies to walk the streets unarmed.

The Steel Warriors gym raises awareness of knife crime whilst providing a safe, positive community space and an outlet for young people, helping to take knives off the streets and drive home the message that carrying one is more likely to ruin your life than save it.

The Damilola Taylor Trust fully supports the development of Steel Warriors. We feel like this project will be of great positive advantage for London’s youth and it will help to develop their minds and channel their energy through positive activity.
— Richard Taylor OBE, Founder of the Damilola Taylor Trust

We are taking careful steps to avoid building with knives that have been used in conflict. All knives used have been discounted as evidence and are set for destruction.
