Non-governmental organisation registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales (1048990)

Type of Organisation: NGO

Project description

A tailored programme of activities providing safe, neutral spaces for local authorities and the communities they serve to enter into dialogue and rethink radicalisation.

This programme features: blended seminars and community workshops with expert input; single identity activities with youth groups; facilitated Q&As with officials; and other participatory activities delivered in local communities.

The Community Dialogue approach raises awareness of radicalisation while providing a carefully cultivated spaced for constructive airing of grievances, with a view to depolarising and localising the solutions to the controversial local issues that drive radicalisation and the national agendas designed to prevent it.

Deliverables

Trained ‘community champions’ are one of the outcomes that can arise from these programmes.
