We have developed courses to increase understanding about the law, the path into and out of violent extremism, hate crime, gangs, and youth violence, and other intersecting and contextual safeguarding concerns, and the practical actions to help prevent and identify risk and vulnerability.
ConnectFutures works with young people, practitioners and communities to increase knowledge, resilience and confidence in preventing extremism and serious violence, challenging hate, and promoting equality and justice.
We combine insight, experience and practice to develop and deliver programmes, mentoring and workshops underpinned by research to make lasting change. Our courses and bespoke programmes can help prevent these at grassroots level by empowering people with knowledge and practical tools. We work nationally across the UK, with International experience including Western Europe, The Balkans, Central, South and South East Asia, North and Sub-Saharan Africa, and the US.

Harnessing the experience and knowledge of an internationally respected team, ConnectFutures provides independent expertise to a wide range of clients.

Our team can help you carry our in-depth research and create evaluative reports, helping you highlight important issues and raise awareness around relevant topics. Our combination of qualitative and quantitive research ensures you get a quality output that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.
Sometimes a one day course isn’t enough, you need something strategic, that is designed specifically for you and your needs to deliver value over time. Our programme design delivers a series of activities across a number of days, weeks or months, giving you the tools and resources to successfully engage your audience around difficult subject matters.
The #Formers films aim to tell the stories of four former extremists in their own words. These include a mixture of both former ‘Islamist’ as well as former ‘far-right’ violent extremists.
