TRAINING & RESEARCH TO PREVENT EXTREMISM & EXPLOITATION IN THE UK

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.

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.
