About Us

Harnessing the experience and knowledge of an internationally respected team, ConnectFutures provides independent expertise to a wide range of clients. Our unique, intersectional approach combines academic excellence with extensive practitioner experience and is informed by our strong ethical framework and commitment to justice.

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.

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.

Our Films

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.
