Training and research for the prevention of extremism and exploitation.

Extremism and exploitation are on the rise in the UK and abroad. Our courses can help prevent these at grassroots level by empowering people.


When people feel isolated and marginalised, they can resort to extreme behaviour patterns as a way of regaining control of themselves and their surroundings. Our research has shown that these patterns can be broken if spotted early. That’s why we’ve dedicated our lives to help leaders and educators identify these before they become a threat.
