Calling all Families Affected by the Manchester Arena Tragedy!

The Greater Manchester Police Work in Collaboration with the British Ironwork Centre to Create an Anti-Violence Monument

In July, a 7.5 tonne lorry arrived here at the Ironworks to deliver thousands of weapons – including knives and guns – which have all been collected from the streets of Manchester. All weapons were collected as part of the Greater Manchester Police's (GMP) 'Forever Amnesty'. The knife and gun banks used for the amnesty were designed and created here at the Centre and have been utilised as a continual programme to encourage and support the public to surrender their dangerous weapons in order to clear the streets of violent and aggressive behaviour. Manchester are the first location in the UK to develop and commit to an ongoing amnesty project like this, with all collected weapons to be used to create an anti-violence monument for the city.
