You had the foresight to engage with young people in such a positive and supportive arena, encouraging dialogue and equipping them with the skills to make their point and to find the way to be heard. We live in a world where teenagers are growing up as good on line communicators but without opportunity are losing the skills to engage verbally. This is such a vital skill, and these weeks have seen, huge leaps in the confidence of these young people. I was extremely impressed with the filmed debates, a culmination of all the hard work, and a reflection of the young peoples growth.”

The work was well-structured, enabled empowerment, and created an opportunity for young people to really have a voice. ConnectFutures applied assessment, review and academic insight, which really helped us in the commissioning process. It gave West Midlands Police feedback, which we can now use to help design more meaningful relationships with young people for the future. I am so thankful for their help and support in making the West Midlands community a better and more engaged society.

What I love about the team is their “can do” attitude, fresh thinking, creativity and most of all, the independent, credible role they maintain. They are not wedded to chasing a contract – remaining ethical – and sometimes are a critical friend to my work.”

They expertly facilitated discussions and enabled issues that were tiptoed around and seen as taboo to be brought to the forefront and debated. So much so, that a clear set of approaches is now embedded into our working practice. Our staff were impressed with the knowledge and cultural competence of the trainers and their ability to answer any question that came their way. The training has helped our workers understand how and why extremists recruit young vulnerable people and the reality of what happens after they are groomed. St Giles Trust and ConnectFutures and are now working in partnership on a ground breaking project that will explore the newly emerging links between some London based drug gangs and radicalisation. ConnectFutures will be supporting project design and recruitment, as well as providing specialist support to our gangs workers who are assisting young people on the cusp of radicalization and serious offending.”

We discovered an organisation that is innovative, creative and works with us to create and implement programmes that reflect and support the needs of the Trust and its students.

Together we have devised Speak UP Stand UP, a series of five workshops that uses the power of storytelling and the experience of a diverse group of students to build bridges and break down barriers.

Working with Zubeda, Laura and Lynn, is an exhilarating process that brings expertise and experience to the topic of extremism and radicalisation and challenges you to approach it in a dynamic, imaginative and inclusive way that brings out the best of all those involved.”
