Through our combination of academic knowledge, practitioner experience and community connection, we have developed courses to increase understanding to promote equality and challenge hate. Our progammes explore diverse topics from the law to people’s lived experience, the paths into and out of violent extremism, hate crime, gangs, and youth violence, and other intersecting safeguarding concerns, and the practical actions to help prevent and identify risk and vulnerability.
Our aim is to build resilience and promote positive change.
