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.
We are an independent social enterprise working with young people, communities and practitioners against extremism and exploitation. We design and deliver training and research for a wide range of organisations, and develop bespoke programmes that increase knowledge, build resilience and engage in fun and creative ways.
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.
What we're up to...
“I have forgiven him.”
Figen Murray is the mother of Martyn Hett, 29, a PR worker who was killed in the Manchester Arena bomb attacks in May 2017. 22 people were killed and 120 injured at the when Salman Abedi, 22, carried out a suicide bomb attack at the Ariane Grande concert.
We ask her what she would say to Salman Abedi if he was alive, why she rejects being labelled a victim, being trolled on the internet after she publicly forgave the attacker and her response to those who questioned why she was not grieving enough.
Figen hopes that by coming together and sharing solutions we have less to fear when tackling extremism. She wants to remember her son as an “ambassador for positivity.”
