Welcome to The Godwin Lawson Foundation

Using sports to break down barriers

Yvonne Lawson, Godwin's mother

The Godwin Lawson Foundation was set up in memory of my son, Godwin, who was tragically killed in a knife crime in 2010.

Thank you for wanting to find out more about the charity and our work to tackle the causes of knife crime in London, as well as across the UK.

We are a new charity aiming to raise awareness of the positive role that sport and education can have in challenging gang culture and the use of weapons as a status symbol.

If you can help us, do feel free to get in touch and if you are able to donate to the charity, please feel free to use the Just Giving link on the site.
