There is growing evidence to show that levels of hate and extremism are rising across the UK and beyond, causing devastation to victims and their families and spreading mistrust within communities. Within a climate of heightened tensions and widening divisions, it is imperative that organisations across different sectors deliver effective, evidence-based responses to victims, perpetrators and wider communities.

We offer a range of flexible, interactive and tailored training packages and continuing professional development opportunities. We use our research expertise and teaching experience to deliver training that meets both yours and your employer's needs. All of our training is accredited by the University of Leicester.

Bespoke training

We recognise that different organisations require support, advice and training in different areas. For this reason we deliver bespoke training packages that are tailored to meet the needs of a specific organisation and the sector in which it operates.

Our training is designed to be different. We blend theory, research and practice to give you the knowledge that you need to engage with diverse communities, support victims and tackle hate.
