Project description

Reclaim Radical is a project designed around three short films wholly created and filmed by young people who researched and wrote the scripts, and formed the cast and crew.

Frontline practitioners working with young people can use the films as a springboard to hold honest conversations and meaningful dialogue about radicalism-related issues.

The films are accompanied by a toolkit of youth-proofed national resources for staff to use in creating bespoke programmes about radicalisation and extremism, based on the work carried out using the films.


Three films, used to introduce sessions with young people to help professionals ascertain the knowledge base of the groups they are working with.

The final product is a training resource for professionals which is a toolkit. Its is accompanied by three films that are used as a group work tool.

The Reclaim Radical toolkit and link to films is available online.
