Free radicalisation and extremism awareness raising sessions

The sessions will be run by a former reformed Extreme Right-Wing (ERW) activist and mentor who now supports people to leave extremism and help build resilience for the future. There are three dates in total for attendees to choose from.

These sessions have been commissioned by Groundwork following a successful joint application by Suffolk County Council and Norfolk Community Safety Partnership to the Home Office Preventing Radicalisation Fund.

The 2-hour sessions, held online, will cover:

• Extremist narratives explained including groups, recruitment techniques (highlighting similarities between extreme right-wing and Islamic/faith extremism) and strong counter-narratives.

• Online space, social media platforms, games and chats used by extremist activists.

• Support attendees to have difficult conversations with susceptible people, how to find out their concerns and where to get specialist support.

• Explain the Prevent process and improve parents and carers confidence in making an appropriate referral.

• Signs of radicalisation to look out for.

• How extremists specifically target people with Autism, people who have suffered abuse, have been bullied etc.

The main beneficiaries of this project will be front line professionals, parents and carers, charities and voluntary sector, who are engaging directly with young people including:

  • Parents/carers/foster carers  
  • Teachers
  • Social Care
  • Early Help Hubs/Teams
  • Police
  • Voluntary Sector
  • Charity and 3rd sector
  • Health professionals
  • Frontline Youth Workers
